I was in the shop working on some shelf supports for my daughters new house (new project she just came up with), and I was chopping some 1x3's x 5" long and I, getting to much in automatic mode, left my sample that I was scribing my stock with, too close to the stock, and when I dropped the blade through the stock, the blade hit my sample and shot it towards the lumber, with my thumb in between holding the lumber in place. Ouch!! Didn't do a whole lot of damage, but it sure did hurt!! It's turned a bit more purple on the side since I took this picture. But pain is gone. Iced it up for about an half hour after. Will remember to move the sample out the way!!.
