Tools: A lesson in table saw safety *PIC*

On another project this week, I had a good lesson in table saw safety. I'm always careful with line of fire precautions and careful feeding. I was trimming the edge of a piece of roughcut pine board I was machining into 1x3 for a project. The trimmed piece got grabbed by the blade after the cut and shot across the shop to the laundry room door. It actually went half way through the hollow core door. Oops.
