Cutting some cabinet doors today, LOML insisted on helping me. She would hold pieces for me when I was cutting down sheet goods. When I started cutting doors on the TS I told her to stay back and not grab the doors coming off the saw. 7th door and she forgot, she reached out and grabbed it. The saw grabbed it back from her and threw it at me. Couldn’t quite get everything out of the way in time, got my arm.

Hearing about accidents is no fun. I’m always leary of asking one of my children to help with the saw.

Hope everything get back to normal fast.

Now would be an excellent time to use her guilt for some new tools ;^)

Glad it wasn’t any worse.

Dan,

I was just about to mention what Lew said. Look at it this way. You are helping her to forgive herself for the accedent by letting her buy you the tool that you maybe couldn’t afford yesterday.

Just a thought
