I was not going to post but might save someone dealing with this. This morning I was cutting some stingers using a sled. Cutting out knots from 5/8" stock. Cut in front of the knot. Then made a cut behind the knot and the small piece fell off on the sled. I pulled the sled back to remove the stock.
What happened then I am honestly not clear on. But apparently the cut off piece was launched by the blade into my thumb. It took the thumbnail off. Yes off! Needless to say taking some other parts of the thumb I wanted to keep with it. X-rays reveal a chipped bone. Trip to the Orthro Doc Friday. Not the morning I was hoping for!
So watch those cutoff pieces. This is the only the second time I have seen the loose piece go flying.
