Worth watching - Kickback from machinery

Sometimes I feel darwinism isn't as efficient as it could be.

I learnt that Lesson when I was a Young Fella, I was building a Vanity unit out of some Jarrah and was triming the rail ends of the door , same thing happened , lucky for me it was a 300 x 600 door so I kept my fingers , the door hit me in the goolies and kept going landing on the other side of the shed , I still have the Vanity and every time I look at the slice in the back of the door my sphincter still clenches, I have treated all power tools with the a lot of respect since.

I hope that does not mean you think think I deserve a darwin award Perry . :shock:

Absolutely not. You didn't DELIBERATELY try and experiment with your hands :)

I saw a piece get thrown whilst doing my pre-apprenticeship. Hit an internal door 6 metres away and smashed through the outer core.

Ive had a solid body SPLIT whilst routing it to size.

Ive been lucky, with the number of power tools and machinery I use.

Scary scary stuff, that requires constant undivided attention.

It's actually pretty good Steve, no blood just a very near miss. I first saw the video a while back, maybe a year or two and it's worth a watch just to see the slowmoe of what is really happening with kickback. Sure we all have a basic understanding of kickback, or at least should, but the video really clarifies things for your minds eye and that's always helpful in theprocess of knowing.

Cheers

Nick, thanks

Kim - Yep I went and watched it, glad you said it didnt have any blood, I would not have watched it if it did. Yep the guys an idiot for even trying to show what happens with kickback.

But all in all it was a good vid - thanks perry.

Good video.

Unless someone has felt it, they simply dont know how brutally powerful kickback is.

I use push blocks or pressure pads depending on which machine. When I look at my pressure pad and see chunks missing, I know I'm using them for a reason.

One machine that cought me by surprise with kickback was the bandsaw. Scared the shit out of me as it's one case I dont use any pushing devices and the fingers are usually pretty close to the blade.

It's a good practice to get into Steve, I always use a push stick/block (or even a scrap of MDF), especially on the bandsaw! I've been using bandsaws all my working life, I've seen how easily a coarse pitched blade can cut a fairly decent chunk of Aluminium so realise my poor little fingers wouldn't stand a chance at the blade speed used for woods & soft metals, and it's too easy to take them off and a whole heap of pain & trouble to put them back on, if at all (fingers that is)!
