Ok, I make my own equipment from discarded crates that I collect from work. This requires a bunch of table saw time.
Yesterday, I had my first and only connection with the blade. This resulted in 6 stitches, work stoppage and a tenuous shot. Lucky for me I had the presence of mind to set the saw up properly with only a minimal amount of blade above the wood. Still, I knew better I actually cautioned myself just seconds before the event.
I felt pressured to get this work out. I had been up all night working a 12hr graveyard shift. This happened at 2:00pm. I'm kind of a driven individual. I know that the root cause was a lack of good judgment brought about by a lack of sleep. As I understand it lack of proper rest is as impairing as excessive alcohol consumption.
Just thought this might cause someone else to think.
