About 6 years ago, my dad was remodelling the house he grew up in before he and my mother moved in. Similar situation, he was ripping something on the table saw real quick before taking another load of stuff back to the house to work on it, got in a hurry and didn't adjust the blade height and completely mangled the tops of three of the fingers on his left hand. He drove himself to my house and from there I drove him to Dothan, AL (usually about a 45-minute drive--I made it there in 25 :p ). He had called ahead to my aunt and uncle (uncle was a surgeon there) and they had a hand surgeon waiting for us when we got to the emergency room. The guy was great...to look at it, you can't even tell anything happened to my father's hand. He was able to grow his fingernails back, but has lost some of the feeling in those three fingers. He's always said that the whole incident was due to his own carelessness and keeps several push sticks around the shop so one is always handy.

Hope your friend recovers well, NT.

Allergies notwithstanding, it's because of pictures like that I don't even use those goddamn things. :eek:

we need a safety thread that is a sticky ....with tips like keeping safety glasses on tools so you don't forget to wear them if you have to take them off the tool might as well put them on things like that.

As a kid helping my dad rip a board on the table saw, I saw him run his index finger into the blade up to the first knuckle. I keep that image in mind when working with power tools, keeps me careful and safe.
