Yep. Add an injury to the list. I stooooooopidly went to adjust my gate height on my bandsaw without turning it off. I have probably done this a thousand times while cutting a piece with exreme differences in thickness (for the record, shut it off, adjust the gate, yurn it back on). I jammed my left thumb directly into the running blade. It went straight in from the fingertip about 3/8". As you know, a bandsaw blade is not what you would call "surgical" (like ome of my carving tools). so it chewed me up good, nail and all. Hurt like heck, bled like heck at first, but stopped after some pressure. Kind of slowing me down on completing orders, as I am left handed.
Be safe, kids, and don't hurry. Do as I say not as I do : )
