    Happily, I don't see any finger tips there.

    Ironically, it did actually cut me pretty good. I thought it happened in the back of a company truck but then I found small pieces strewn across the parking lot. Could be multiple crime scenes.

    If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    Looks like some important bits of a >$500 vacuum have been unintentionally impact tested with unfavorable results.

    (I'm saying this as a funny)

    It is endlessly fascinating to me how otherwise presumably intelligent people persist in the belief that the laws of physics cease to exist in the back of their pickups or the trunks of their cars.

    Sorry that happened. What a heartbreak.

    This is a good thread for this kind of thing:

    ....When you install your brand new Tersa carbides and nick them 10bf later....

    Whose next?

    I had a recently sharpened RK back from laguna come into contact with a ceramic guide about 12-15 mins after taking it out of the box and putting it on the saw. Thankfully Laguna helped me out on that one since the ceramic guide came loose from the aluminum block, but still sucked. Ceramic dulls carbide pretty quickly.

    If the vac still works, you can maybe make it a stationary DC for a miter saw or at a work bench. just need to make the whole thing airtight again.
