You really don’t need a sawstop now, you already learned what not to do. ;-)

Sorry about that and hope you heal quickly.

Please let us know how it happened and what went wrong as a safety reminder to all of us.

Drill press did a little less to my thumb. That sent me down for a Sawstop. One of the best purchases I made. The peace of mind is worth every penny.

I don’t know how it was done but I got a couple year and a half old kids that LOVE daddys shop. I told my wife that when they get a little older and actually wanna start “helping” Im buying a Sawstop. she had never heard of it before so I sent her some vids and the prices from amazon. She’s pushing for me to go a head and buy one now :)

Handsaws aren’t much better

One swipe did it, and one swipe was all it got.

Dude sorry for your injury man. Hope you get well soon. Get that sawstop! Had mine for 3 years and while I’ve still practiced safe sawing practices, and push sticks etc, its good to have the insurance policy there.

Got a JSS. I wish I had gone bigger. Guess I could sell this one at a slight loss and drop a little more money on a bigger one.

I do that, occasionally. At least you can stop the blade after one stroke, instead of a hundred revolutions, right? I always stop after one smash of my thumb, too! 8^D
