Just got mine, too, Karson. Working my way thru it now. I will pay particular attention to the saw safety. I have caught myself not being attentive enough.

thanks for the headsup. I hope your friend recovered and is doing well. I noticed that whenever I am using powertools I keep on having images of what would happen if the board was kicked back, or pulled away from me, making sure my hands would be out of harms way as is my body… easy to lose focus and concentration especially when working with powertools and making repetitive operations.

My friend has now bought a Sawstop to go with the Powermatic that he has in the shop. They were getting ready ready for a workshop and someone else was on the Powermatic and he was on an old Sears that the belt was slipping Etc, etc. A kickback brought his fingers into the saw.

Everything is oK now just the residioul pain.

As President of the Woodworkers Club. I’m always trying to emphasize that our Workshops should do everything safe with jigs, push sticks. It doesn’t always happen. I was really aware of it again and my son David was making a cut on the tablesaw and it didn’t look safe. I wish our design for cutting the part had a greater safety emphasis.

Thanks karson, can this be read on line
a good friend lost two thirds of two fingers after years of using one for forty.
I use a seven an a quarter as much as i can, much safer
and cost less and give you more wood to use

When I first got my table saw and used it, I thought it was easier to work without the guard. After a few close shaves I decided to put the guard back. You never know … just one tiny lapse of attention can spell disaster.
