Topic tags/keywords: accident jointer

Phildo92027, a friend of mine and a fellow LumberJock, had a kickback on the 8” jointer at school yesterday. He lost three fingers down to the second knuckle, keeping his thumb and index finger intact. He is in a lot of pain, and he will be out of commission for a while.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he heals.
