Politics aside how is everyone doing ?

Wouldn't the direction of the blade send any kickback away from you toward the fence? The blade can bind, but there should be no kick toward you.

There is a demonstration of kick back on YouTube.

Having fun working out how to camp on my block. B&Bs etc—too expensive and too far away, like a 40 minute drive away. Can get a water meter put on, $2200. Need a plumber to put a tap on that. Can I get power to the block?

Toilet is a problem. Might be cheaper/easier to rent a portapotty. Chemical toilets STINK!

Can get a little caravan for $6000. A Garden shed might be better.

I know what kick back is, but I was talking about using the miter saw that is in your OP. You have to be very careful of kickback with a handheld circular saw or a table saw. My dad has a wooden notched push tool that he uses to push his work through the saw. It keeps his hand well away from the blade, even though he has the safety saw that is supposed to stop instantly if you touch it with your hand.

My dad's cousin got careless with his table saw last week and earned a trip to the hospital. I'm not sure how serious it is, but his facebook post showed a bandaged hand that seemed to be intact. It can happen to anyone if you don't remain vigilant. Richard is a retired USAF linguist (speaks fluent Chinese) and a recently retired certified Ford mechanic. He is VERY smart.

Edit: I saw the miter saw and you mentioned the clamps and I didn't even see the table saw. My apologies.

only because the fool tried to turn the timber. Use the machine properly and it won't kickback. It's designed for straight cuts. If you need to turn the wood you're on the wrong machine

Keep us posted Pink. Thinking of you.
Thanks. I have a ways to go with tests still, but it could be worse. No bone infections in my neck, just osteoarthritis and a slight comprssion plus worn other bits throughout my neck.
My tummy has been crook since I had the MRI..back on the 22nd I really started to feel OFF.. not chest or anything, but my gut. Haven't eaten a full meal since. Quite literally .... have bloated stomache so started meds today.. diuretics.
More tests next week.

I sure hope the docs and meds can get you feeling better and back to normal, Pink.

Eat bananas whilst on diuretics, Pink. Watch your potassium.

I'm sorry you're being dragged through the mill. Onwards and upwards hey.
