See if those psoted. Yes Larry, tablesaw bit my thumb.
Zulu, I was working late...just finished ripping 8 ea 17" pieces for a project...turned saw off & cannot figure out how my LEFT hand got near the blade...I ALWAYS use my right hand to push (used a push stick) through.....but my left thumb hit that blade straight on...blade made a 1/8" dado in the end of my thumb bone...left 2 little horns that had to be trimmed off so the skin would stretch over the cut.
Doc did a good job. Left E R after 3 hours! Went back to work in shop today. Will post pics of project soon.

Don, I can't see the pictures but I'm assuming you cut your hand. I'm really sorry, Buddy. I'm getting used to mine, but all 4 finger ends are still completely numb.

Don,

Mine was I change my set up using my left hand instead of my right me just not paying attention. Took me a while to get over it as it messed up m mind quiet a bit. Everytime I use the saw, etc Its been about 2 1/2 years since I did it
