Unhappy A little accident

Was in the process of setting up the box joint jig on the little router table and had a little accident. I was cutting the offset block and used a piece that was too small and it shot off tje table and left my finger sitting on top of the spiral bit. It pretty much spiraled off the bit and left me standing there wondering if it took my finger off or what. It isn't deep enough for stitches but shore tore it up and left lots of little tag ends that I have to cut off or it will be like a 100 hang nails! So yes I did learn a lesson... where kevlar gloves Actually do use a sufficiently long enough piece and use a push block. I didn't.
