I hate it when kickbacks happen.

14 stitches to the top of my left hand from a small piece of 1/8” baltic birch plywood…...Then I checked the alignment of my fence

Ya Ray, On this one I was doing work on anothers’ tablesaw using a push stick, it went through my shorts and a piece of plywood 16’ away.
Upon further examination the blade insert was for dado blades. I should have seen it.
I always stand just to the left of the potential kickback area, as you can see this one was close.

Even though what happened was bad enough at least it wasn’t a serious disaster that put you in a hospital for days or weeks. I hope you heal up quickly.

1/4” plywood is the worst. A splitter is a must for not other reason it keeps you from removing the wood till it clears the blade.

I’ve also caught the top of a spinning blade on the bottom of the wood cause I didn’t lift it high enough.

MadMark—yeah but sometimes you have to stand right behind the blade.

BTW all SS owners: this is (probably at least for me) the most common TS injury & your saw won’t prevent it.

Please don’t start this up again, I beg you just let it be.

GoodwithWood, I can’t say that I really understand the opening photo posted.

Are you showing us two projectile paths that occurred to you at the same time, one through your shirt and a second through the pants?

I suspect shirt was tucked into pants.

Glad it wasn’t worse. Broke my thumb due to kickback. Because I was stupid.

The shirt you all are talking about is actually the boxer shorts that were underneath the khaki shorts.
Get it now?

I am very glad you were not hurt worse and it did not target another area of your shorts

Can you tell a bit more..

What type saw…
What type blade
Riving knife or splitter
Blade guard or anti-kickback pawls
Saw guard

For me, I I use a Grripper for narrow stuff like that so I can control a thin cut off between the blade and fence

When I taught woodworking a great example was to point to the dent in the block wall. I still remind the guy about it 40 years later.

“MadMark—yeah but sometimes you have to stand right behind the blade.”

A very bad idea, not nessesary, and not worth the risk of being killed.
