Thanks for sharing these stories, it helps to remind you of the importants safety. One of the tools that always scared me is the radial arm saw. I know two people who had s with them because the blade wasn't pushed all the way back and when they put a piece of molding in front of the blade, it caught and shot forward. One guy cut his hand in half, and the other open up his forearm. I won't allow a radial arm saw in my shop, only sliding compound saws.
One other thing, one of the carpenters I work with had a terrible with a tablesaw. He put in a dado blade in the saw and didn't put in a throat plate. When grooving a small piece of lumber, the saw yanked in the piece with his hand as well. He now has only 2 1/2 fingers on that hand.
One reminder I appreciate is the need for eye protection. Since I wear glasses and sometimes I don't wear eye protection. But when I hear these stories, it reminds my to stop what I am doing and get a face shield.
