Iíve had a not so pleasant day. It all started with having to get blood drawn. Iím not a big fan of needles.
After the blood letting the wife wanted me to hang a piece of laminate counter top in the laundry for her to fold cloths on. I had to cut it down about 8 inches to fit the space. I grabbed a 4 foot clamping straight edge to use as a guide rail for the circular saw and put the counter on the outfeed table of my table saw to cut it. I made sure it was hanging over enough so I wouldnít cut the table saw. In my normal goofball fashion I forgot that the front guide rail for the saw extends about 5 or 6 inches past the table. YES, I proceeded to cut a nice curf into the front guide rail of my table saw. I pretty quickly realized what I was doing from the sound of the saw. When I swung the counter around to see how badly I had cut the rail the straight edge knocked a cherry nightstand Iíve been working on off my assembly table and broke it!
I figured Mr. Murphy had enough laughs from me for the day so I turned and walked back into the house. Iíll see if the table is repairable tomorrow.
On the bright side I didn't get hit with any flying carbide from cutting the rail.
