Wear your Eye Protection !

I was making a basket for my anvil stand and cutting some 1 1/2" bed angle when this happened.  14" standard off-the-shelf HF 14" chop saw.  I've never had this happen before.  Luckily, I was both wearing my Eye Pro and standing well to the side when it decided to let go:

Wear your Eye Pro!

Thanks for looking!

Ooh, that'll leave a mark! Good for you, wearing eye protection and standing out of the plane of rotation. Well done, walk away with nothing but a tale to tell and the blade's the only loss.

Looks like it was intended for fairly light duty as the metal "studs" are quite thin.   I had fun trying to get my students into the leather aprons and safety glasses yesterday.  I wouldn't start class till they were geared up; sort of like teaching our kids to wear seat belts.

I've been using this type for a long time.  I think I got a couple 10 packs several years ago.  Never had fly apart like that.
