Hate posting new threads on topics that have been discussed before, but thought this was worth it in possible keeping some people in check. Over the weekend I was jointing some wood, got a little lazy and was just running the wood with my hands and next thing I know I felt it .....ran my middle finger right in the blades. I was worried to look and when I did couldn't see the extent of damage due to blood. After washing I realized how lucky I was, took about a 1/16 off the tip. Luckily I keep it set fairly small haha. Lesson of the day, USE THOSE PUSH BLOCKS!!
