Thread: Big surprise last night!

  1. #1

    Big surprise last night!

    Ripping a board - I used what I thought was all the safety and correct procedures for ripping a board --

    Did you hear me yell last night? Confession today for the words I used out-loud and even more to myself -- Pain -- so much that I wanted to puke and pass-out at the same time... I even had to put my head between my legs to keep the floor from hitting my nose. assumed a broken arm but it was not..

    KICK BACK err major kick back!!

    The photo does not show the shoulder pain - must have moved my arm back far enough to hurt the shoulder joint..

    I am leery to even turn the saw on now... but I need to use it -- my project is not done/// trying to build up my courage and massage my ego.

    Where i come from we used to say "Eina" with the E pronounced "A". That means very very sore. Sorry to hear of the accident Paul. But they say best medicine is to get back on the horse.

    I agree with Larry tell the detail so people can learn and you can get advice on where things went wrong. Otherwise no one is the wiser.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Ouch! Glad you're OK otherwise.

    Did the board pinch the blade or something?

    Nasty! BTDT...

    Using a splitter? - preferably one with pawls? I hardly ever make a thru cut without one any more. Same with my UNIGuard - I nearly always use it.

    They work, and I feel much less apprehensive about using the saw with them on there. Note: Some apprehension is a good thing. It helps keep you mind on the task at hand.

    Glad it was only a bruise what you got.

    That's funny Rob, in my mother tongue "Eina" written in exactly the same way but being the E pronounced "E" means.... Tool
