I have a couple that are up there..

I was ripping a larger sheet of plywood once and something went wrong because the TS kicked the whole sheet of plywood back at me. It was a rather large sheet but the saw still threw it all the way back and it hit the wall. Luckily I was standing way off to the side when pushing it through so it did not hit me… Now anytime I have to rip a large sheet I will often go get my wife and have her kind of help support it as I push it through..

Another one that comes to mind is I was using the drill press and I cant remember what I was drilling but the piece I was drilling somehow got stuck on the drill bit and took it out of my hands.. So the press was spinning fast with the bit and small piece of wood stuck to it.. My first reaction was to duck which I did, but in order to turn the press off I had to reach above it… Again, nothing bad happened as I got it shut off and the wood never went flying but it was a scare.
