Ouch!

I hope he heals up….

I’ve never experienced kick back on my table saw. I’m very conscious of it, though. I was prepping some rough cut boards this week and made light passes on the jointer to ensure I had a flat edge to ride the TS fence. This helps prevent the board binding. I also ran all the boards through with the cupped side down, so they weren’t prone to wobble. I keep the blade guard (with kick back pawls) on the saw most all the time. And I use a push stick or pad.

None the less… I know that Murphey’s army is out to get me.

It’s so easy to have an accident. And I don’t count myself “above” that.

A little fear and sober respect of the power of your tools is always a good thing, imho.
