How my table saw hurts me, is when I stand shirtless in front of the stream of wood particles being ejected by my dado blade. Some of those particles really sting when they hit my bare belly.
stylus,Am I the only one who thinks Mr. Clemens might a madman?
Am I the only one who thinks we need more like him?
I've destroyed 3 rip gates like that, wood always ends up in my ribs. Moral of the story? Buy a real table saw, not a 2 lb harbor freight saw that jumps around.God forbid the saw toss the board at your bare belly. I always wear at least a shirt and most of the time an apron. My neighbors Dad died from a board hitting him in the stomach...could it have been avoided, who knows, but maybe a little protection could have made the difference.
