Chop Saws are Dangerous.

This happened in a split second. Didn't have the part clamped tight enough, and went to tighten it and it slipped.
The actual pix are graphic. VERY.



So, needless to say, be careful.


You dont want to end up like Nine Half and now me, coz together we make 19, and 19 sux.
