Uncle sawed his middle finger from fingertip through to second knucle before noticing something was amiss.

this incident affected me personally for twenty years. I think of it every time I hit the start switch on my TS.

Push handle ? – Check
Blade height ? – Check
Dry run will everything stay balanced after the cut? – Check
Measure twice? – Check
Common sense okay for the whole cut? – Check
Okay hit the start switch.

I know one guy that was seriously injured by a kick-back (he was cutting thin strips … one got caught between the blade and the fence. His right thumb and fore-arm will never be the same.).

I know another guy that lost the tips of the four fingers on one had in a jointer accident.

Well, my previous answer was 2(see above). I mentioned your survey to #2(of 2 above) and he updated me. This has happened to him probably 6 times. EEEEk!!! The most recent was last week(looking at the fresh bandaid on his middle finger).

So(unfortunately) update my answer from 2 to 7.

1 – Not me, thank the good Lord.

A guy I know managed a severe kickback and it knocked him out cold while standing over the saw, and he fell on the blade. Really messed up his hand, wrist, and arm. Eventually got ~90% of his dexterity back.

Be careful out there!
