Trying to rush to finish a job. Yes I was using a push stick. I reached down after making the cut to power down. The small piece of wood kicked back and like an ...more idiot I tried to stop it and hit the blade spinning at 5000 rpm. My research discovered my finger hitting the blade was like a car hitting a block wall at 1000 mph. So my fishing will be hurt for a while as well as my work. I need a handyman or carpenter in my area to help finish scheduled jobs.
