The worst for me was kickback of a piece os 1/4” scribe I was cutting.. the pushstick was too worn out to securely hold the piece as I was cutting it off a larger board.. the little tab that was holding the piece as I fed it thru the saw broke off as I was completeing the cut and the saw threw the scribe with such a force that it flew across the room (35 feet).. and went thru a piece of 3/4” solid red oak lumber.. completely thru it!! the 10 foot stick shattered upon impact, but still.. had it hit me or my cousin.. it would have been a disaster.. now I make sure that the pushsticks are new and in good shape.. and I warn anyone in the shop to NOT stand by me or the saw..

Other than that.. I’m not too afraid of anything really..I’m cautious, careful, and aware that these machines are NOT my friends and command respect at all times
