Chop Saw

Postby Jeff Silvey » Tue Feb 16, 2010 8:50 am

Well I was making some of those table cloth clamps on Sunday. I was using a chop saw which make a lot better cut. When I raised it up the guard did not come back far enought to protect the blade. I didn't see that till I reached in to get something out of the way and the blade decided to cut other things other than the pipe. I said you :censored: . It wasn't bad but I went inside to get something the boss said what did you do. I said I had my head some where else beside's on what i was working on.

Glad you are ok and it wasn't too too serious. Safety in the shop hopefully is always first and foremost on the mind.. but you know.. sometimes stuff happens.. and that is when you get hurt :(

BTDT... the only thing that hurts worse than the finger, is the pride :big shy: -- plus every time somebody mentions Tool Time.. what do they bring up :?: :?: :?: :?: yup, you got it.. :big give up:

Does this mean you won't have to "paint" them red as Ellen suggested. They will now be naturally stained that color. Hope you heal well. Those things have a heck of a bite to them.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
