**VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED** <<<Needs link to photo? It's a gruesome photo of Chris's hand after he cut it on the table saw, include or not?>>>
This link takes you to a photo of Chris Jenkins' hand after he cut it on a table saw. It's a graphic photo that you might not want to look at. Speaking of tables saws, follow this link and scroll all the way down. Sawstop would have saved him. We remind everyone to use extreme caution when operating powered tools or machinery.
