:laughing: If that was real he sure is dumb. His blade was excessively high which would have prevented that in the first place. And who is dumb enough to put their finger in line with the blade that close to it. he kept cutting for a while after he cut it off too. My vote is that it was fake. :thumbsup:
I think it was a set up. He was too predictable from the beginning. The thumb didn't look real. It looked like it had dark tape on it. A fake thumb could have been held in his hand with a packet of movie blood that he squeezed. His reaction wasn't dramatic enough. He had the camera going and the close up shot...just too much of a set up. I've seen the real thing, and that didn't look real.
Weather it was fake or real. It was shocking and something for all new people getting into woodworking should see. Also a great reminder for us more seasoned woodworkers. Make you realize how fast this sort of accident can happen.
Always work safe!
hi all, im voting that was fake (thumb different colour to hand for starters amongst other things)but what was`nt fake was how close is hand was to the rotating blade pretty stupid for a prank i reckon.
