So I'm supposed to take the fact of it being dangerous very seriously, right? I mean that's the whole purpose of the sensationalism right? But I shouldn't take things so serious... Make up my mind. That's the problem with being f.o.s. it takes away from the purpose. Get it?

Re: Excellent Use For Old Miter Saw Blades


If it's faster? ...........it usually is more dangerous. I like to use tools for their intended or designed use. This saw is for cutting pavers, concrete, etc. Wood cutting saws with a large diameter typically turn at much lower rpm's. There's a reason........so you are less likely to kill yourself

Take a 2 liter soda and dump it out on the ground. Then imagine that's blood. Not many people have seen that much blood so they're bound to say things like the above.

Nevertheless, the point stands that using that tool with that blade is really ****ing dangerous. The attitude that people are being "pussies" for not taking unnecessary risks gets people seriously hurt.

Yes it took that long to realize that it wasn't just a scratch.
Wow, neck wounds are almost always fatal.
I caught one in the chest. Drove home 100 miles and wifey (aka the Royal B***h) said, oh that's nothing, go back to work.
Lucky for me, I didn't listen to her and went directly to the Doc.

Why use a chainsaw? Pretty unnecessary risk when a handsaw is faaaaar less likely to cause injury....

I count myself very lucky. One, it was less than 1/4" piece, two it missed anything major, and three it was a brand new blade and so somehow didn't cause any kind of infection.

I was the other way though, I kept insisting it was fine whereas my wife was convinced there was something in it. She basically sat on my chest on the couch and pulled it out with a knife and tweezers.

Re: Excellent Use For Old Miter Saw Blades


Dont they make a blade similer to a miter saw blade for those saws?? Not the one in a previous post. Think its callee an evo blade or something along those lines??

I do belive the company i work for has one.

Neeeless to say that set up looks sketchy.

Re: Excellent Use For Old Miter Saw Blades


I've used that setup before , yeah it's dangerous but it is easy to control the throttle On the saw. just because it goes full throttle does not mean it always has to be wide open

I guess that is not much different than me using my .38 instead of a stupid drill to run a TV cable into my barn.

Well the short answer is a chainsaw is designed for that job. Chainsaws have rakers to keep them from kicking back. As do the demo blades that look like mitre saw blades.

Chirp me all you want. I'm sure the kid with a quick cut saw in his neck would find it [email protected]*king hilarious. Also to the jackass call me a liberal whatever. There may of been an exaggeration on the amount of blood but I assure you there is no exaggeration on the fact that a 21 year old kid died. So keep laughing and I'm sure it'll be real funny when it's you or your kid that gets killed.
