Yea, I got bit. If you have a Griz with a riser block check that add on blade guard to make sure if can't move and expose the blade. It isn't clear in this photo but the blade guard leaves the blade just barely exposed at the top.
Tonight I was cutting out boat frames. Placed one on the table and when I spun around for some reason I had my left hand up in the air and you guessed it. I backhanded the guard right at the top and sliced to fingers. Just one of the freak things that I still not sure why happened. I can't figure out why I hit it but I did. The guard bent and my fingers hit the blade.
Cut looks bad but it just a flesh wound. Needless to say it bleed really good and was hard to get it to stop. After the initial panic I could see it was not serious. Just didn't want to stop bleeding though. Of course it scared my wife. She was just certain it was bad and it did look it. But just a deep flesh cut.
Not sure how to fix the guard but odds are slim of ever hitting it way I did again.
And for the morbidly curious, here is photo. Notice how it sliced the nails too?
