Of all my power tools the chop saw is the one that I could most imagine losing body parts with.
This fear helps to concentrate the mind somewhat when I use this saw, but I could easily imagine not concentrating, holding the piece of wood to be chopped, moving my hand to the wrong place and ........OUCH!!!!!
OUCH You'd think he would take the pressure off the handle before he got right through?
Maybe he thought he may aswell finish the job off nice and cleanly :twisted:
Yeah there is some internet database with lots of accidents. I read about a guy in the US who was on a roof with a pneumatic nailer. It got jammed, he looed down the barrel without dis-conneting the air hose. The nail shot into his eye, causing him to jump back and fall off the roof. He broke BOTH legs and was blinded in one eye permenantly!
Pray it happens to none of us. As long as your sensible its OK and that is an example of stupidity!
