I was ripping a 2×6 that had a cross cut in it. The cross cut piece came loose and caught on the blade. The flying piece was about 1.5” X 2” X 4”. After bouncing off my head it ended up ~15’ away from the table saw in the other direction.

It hurt like &^%$ for the first couple minuets but not much more than shaky nerves after that. Now I can only feel it if I think about it.

Phew, looks like it missed the BullsEYE… that is a good thing. Those tablesaws can be tricky… I hope all is well.
