Topic tags/keywords: table-saw injury

Dried blood just pops right off with a swipe of a shop rag.

Left thumb, missed the thumbnail, nicked the bone but not broken. Should count my lucky stars it’s still attached, I suppose.

First decent day, temperature-wise, that I’ve had in over a month to be in my shop. Sigh…
I think it’s time to buy that GRR-RIPPER I’ve had on my Rockler wish list for almost a year.

Ouch. I thought our string of shop injuries was over. I hope it heals soon with minimal pain. Darn it.

So sorry to hear about your accident.

We should pray for safety when we enter our shop, and give thanks when we leave in one piece, because these machines are dangerous.

Hope you heal quickly and completely.

Tom, heck of an idea, maybe a woodworkers prayer. I can see it now carved in wood hanging in everyones shop. Maybe you can author one? It would be another original like the Lumber Jock song!

Allen, sorry to hear of your accident, I had a similar experience this summer too. I hope you heal fast, and if your like I am, I have a renewed sense of safety in the shop.

Someone had the Gripper on sale just the other day too. I think I saw a post over on the Sawmill Creek forum.

There is a newer model out now and the older one is not upgradable.

Caveat emptor!

Right now Rockler has them on sale for $40 ($50 regular). I’ve considered getting one, but thought they looked like cheap plastic crap. It sounds like my visual impression was incorrect.

Allen, if you run your had over a jointer a few times, apply the right type of glue, and let it sit in some clamps for a while, it will be stronger than it was before. Seriously though, I’m glad to hear your accident wasn’t any worse.
