For all you custom stick builders out there. Spend $1500 on a table saw or spend $100,000 reattaching your fingers when you slip. Every 9 mins someone suffers a table saw injury in the US.
Just thought I’d pass this along because there seems to be a lot of people attempting (including myself) to build custom sticks lately, so its only a matter of time before an SRK’er looses his fingers. Safety first. There are some great testimonial videos of people who’s fingers got saved on Youtube.
Even when using a table saw properly many people get injured. (wood kicks/binds and fingers fly into machine at light speed.
