Here is what happens when you just Touch a sharp, moving, band saw blade with your fingernail.





This is one of those "you're SO Lucky" statements where you are lucky it wasn't worse but "Lucky?". If you were lucky, it wouldn't have happened at all!

BZ, you really need this table saw I saw on some HG tv show. WHen any skin touches the blade, it closes a circuit that causes the blade to retract into the table in a millisecond. The demo was pretty cool (they used a hot dog). All it did was leave a tiny nick, less severe than these pics you posted.

Ben , Please be careful. Do you know how important those hands are to us.
Maybe we should take a collection to insure them through lloyds of london.
If J-lo can insure her ass and Tina Turner has leg coverage, Benzarts hands should be too.
All kidding aside glad to see your okay and my thoughts are with you as your surgery aproaches..

Thanks guys, you must think I'm a Klutz or something like that. It really looks worse than it is, but it sure freaked Sherry out when I came in holding my finger in a bloody paper towel and she asked "What did you do"?. When she heard the word BandSaw, she didn't hear anything else. She thought I had cut it off. Really it isn't that bad.
Thanks

damn Benz you are scaring the hell out of me. I have almost made a few mistakes with my bandsaw it is easy to do. You need some special saw and chisel proof gloves. Glad it was not worse..

Power tools scare me... especially table saws... the boards always kick back at me. The bandsaw scares me alot too but I keep fingers as far away as possible.
Anything with high rpm can do big time damage... I've had a few run ins with the angle grinder...

Take care of yourself Ben...

Correct me if I'm wrong Benz, but I think we have a Moai here.
Can you say "Ebay"?
Glad to know you're not looking for a high school wood shop-teaching job (four finger prerequisite).

Was that the middle finger? I'm glad you still have it to tell us all that we're #1.

Tiki-bot's probably talking about SawStop. The
viedos of the hotdog demo are impressive.

Ben hope that filangee is doing ok. That nail should be coming off soon enough! Sell that sucka!

Hey Yum Yum kid. How does that medieval looking glove feel on your hand. Can you still grip things good with it? Looks like a good idea to me.....What do you call it actually. Is it shark proof?

G.
