or maybe I should be looking for the "really lucky" forum. Picture #1 is my new MS 261 Saw. Picture #2 is my knee. Hint: So frikken in love with this new saw I wanted to go on the Oprah show and jump up and down on her couch but instead stayed out all afternoon and evening cutting log after log after log - even after dark under the spotlight. Should be easy to connect the dots and guess what happened in between picture #1 and picture #2. This cut is not bad. Does not need stitches and surprisingly did not bleed more than few drops of blood.It did not penetrate completely thru the skin to the tissue below. I had it cleaned & dressed right away. It only looks bright red and ugly because of the collateral abrasions from the chiz. I have not yet decided if I am more lucky that stupid or visa-versa. Never use a dangerous tool in less that perfect light. Tomorrow I will get my self some saw-chain resistant boots and coveralls. Safety Nazis are welcome to pile on. I deserve it. p.s My 13-NC is almost safe now.
