I got very lucky and not injured being fast, not safe and stupid on my table saw a few years ago.

I was mounting some doors into a kitchen cabinet I made. A rustic monster. The top doors were pine styles and rails but instead of any kind of panel they wanted RUSTED 1/4 mess wire sort of like chicken wire in them.

One of the doors needed just a smidge shaved off one side I set my fence but didnt use any feather boards, push stick or glasses or helmet.

I Pushed it through then let it go to get a better grab on it. The damn think rode up on the blade. then blade cut half way sawed through that rail. then grabbed that WIRE then fired it back right at my head!

I Literally tilted my head flat to the left just in the nick of time for the door to go spinning frizbee style right over my head, Punched through my garage door and landed next to my car in the back lot.

KNOCK WOOD!
