    I broke my teeth on the table saw

    This is what happens when you set the feather board a little too snug. Oh well. Probably needed a new one anyway.

    Oh and the title on your post got my attention, thought you slipped on some sawdust and nose dived into your table saw; glad the real story isn't so dramatic.

    I had intended it to be an attention grabber.... maybe too much?

    BTDT, just a few weeks ago. Lot of "Excitement" when I did mine. (I was using on the table clamped in the miter guage slot. A bit close but not near the blade I assumed but what I hadn't noticed was that I had too much pressure and when the work piece passed the teeth twanged and recoiled to hit the blade. KaBam!!! Looked for blood found none, looked in my shorts found some (not blood but....) Woke up my complacent self and got me re-remembering safety issues.

    I too got a new set, picked up a Safety set from Rockler, was on "Special" got a couple of block pushers as well as a push stick with a magnet on the side.

    Thanks. I did get one or two of the little shrapnel, but it's so light it did nothing but sting a bit.

    Hmmm Shorts were clean, but I learned a lesson. Mine happend the same way, as soon as the work was passed, and my arm was extended over the table.

    That's why I only use my bare hands right near the blade. Plastic is dangerous.






















    Just kidding, in case anyone decides to take this seriously. Glad to see the damage was no worse than it was.
