Wow Mike. Close call, there.
Most of my planing is @ 3/4” or less. I gotta remember your story for those thicker pieces.
Come to think of it, I built a sled for the planer just for those thinner cuts. But, I’ve been using it for almost all of my cuts recently. The surface is covered with 60 grit cloth backed sandpaper, so I can lay a piece on and feed it through by pushing the sled instead of the work. That serves to keep the fingers away from the opening. Hadn’t thought of that.
