3 nicks, 1 mine, 2 my brother.
I know many others with injuries on the RAS, BS, DP, lathe, jointer, skilsaw, chain saws, router and utility knives and one stupid cub scout who cut his finger on the scroll saw. Accidents happen but mostly due to not paying attention or being over tired or stressed. All tools are inharently dangerious even hand tools… How many times have you stabed yourself with a screwdriver then said danm that was stupid. I bet screwdrivers are involved in more accidents than TS.

I am a retired shop teacher. Who knows how many kids I observed in 34 years! I had one kid the first year that decided to use the table saw without permission, no guard, no fence, kicked back and cracked his ribs but kickbacks do not count in the survey.

No other student of mine injured on the table saw.

Team taught with another teacher for 11 years. He had two students cut on the table saw. So my answer is 2.

I think around 10 – but I was asking about injuries so I found out a few, most didn’t loose the finger but were injuries.
I sliced the tip of my finger on a table saw, my grandfather lost the top half of 4 fingers, an old shop teacher lost part of a finger a friend of my dad lost a part of a thumb. the rest were “just” cuts.
