I saw a patient the other day who had a perianal injury from a chain thrown off his saw, and now I think about it every time I use my saw. Do newer saws have some kind of safety mechanism to prevent a broken chain from being thrown at the user? I tend to sight down the bar when I'm cutting, but don't want that chain thrown into my face, or between my legs. I didn't ask him what kind of saw he was using; he was in too much pain.
