    You should vote anyway. There's a category that best fits you somewhere if you don't assume this only applies to blade injuries and brakes being disabled. There's a reason I left it at just "I've been injured" and didn't specify anything else.

    I've had two kickback injuries from my 3 hp Uni...both my fault, neither one were blade (me getting cut) injuries.
    I drink, therefore I am.

    Non-SS owner - no injuries. Paying attention to setups and stopping when I don't feel safe has kept me from being hurt when using my table saw or other power tools. My worst shop injuries have been from a razor knife when cutting veneer!

    Live every day like it's your last, but don't forget to stop and smell the roses.

    I just got kicked in the gut a few days ago from the router table. Small ouchy, but nothing serious. That, and at least one guitar out of the next batch will have the back painted black. LOL. It sort of emphasizes keeping your hands out of the line of fire. It could have drawn them right in had I not been awake.

    I suspect that a lot of us have little woopsies on power tools from time to time and get away with it because of habits that keep you reasonably safe even when things don't go perfectly.
