This is the 2nd accident with the saw. Last one just nipped the side of my finger, this one a bit more harsh. Even though I know not to reach where I shouldn't it's the instinctual reach that gets me. I could see it happening even before I did it so...oh well..
Surprising that I've had very little pain with this one until this evening..It's catching up with me.
Last time around everything was healing well then right after I finally removed the bandage for good I went and smacked it with a mallet which hurt even more than when I cut it. I did the &#@$! dance for an hour.. lol
Anyway, I have to figure out how I'm going to move the old saw and all the other crap in the way when I finally get the new saw. With two good hands it's not a huge problem, but with a hand and a half it's a problem.. I wonder if the place I'm planning to buy from will deliver and set it up..not that I particularly trust other people to do these things for me, but I might not have a lot of other options..
I figure that the cost of a new cartridge and blade, about $130 is definitely cheaper than a finger and the pain that goes with it.. Also looking at even more for a dado cartridge. I've never had any problems with dado blades.. if I had enough space I'd love to keep both saws and keep the old one as a dedicated dado saw.. Maybe I can talk the old woman into giving up her pile of junk on the other side of the garage..The only thing I think has to be out here is the lawn mower..the rest is her small mountain of sentimental junk..
I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
