Table saw got me
« on: December 06, 2011, 05:03:00 AM »
Well seems I got a little to comfortable with the tablesaw last week. Mangled the middle finger and bruised the two next to it. Carbide blades don't leave much. I think I'll put that guard back on now ::)

Ouch! It can happen to anyone, and if you don't feel comfortable with it again, you can buy the SawStop table saw....reviews are excellent, but pricey. What did the trip to the ER cost?

How much did you loose?

Hope not to much.  Especially off the middle finger as your close enough to use it for what it was meant for, WASHINGTON!   ;D

Did'nt go to the er I knew there was nothing they could with it. Mangled it half way down the finger nail. Wraped it in a rag and went home. Cleaned it up which hurt more then cutting it. Had my doc call in some antibotics. Kirk I still got the other hand to wave to washington. ;D
