Re: OK post your close calls
Hemi, I did the same thing in 1982, ripping a thin narrow board when the saw kicked back. it went between my third and pinky finger up to my wrist, It took 6 hours of surgery the only thing left attached was one vein and a couple of nerves. Pinky still doesn't work. Needless to say it changed my safety habits. I've been doing carpentry for 30 years and have had different power tools kick back a little I had a grinder jump out of my had and almost hit me in the fact is, the more times you use a power tool the greater the odds that you can get injured.
