Chris4X4- Urban Legend in the making.

Film at Eleven.

So you got hit 2.15 times? Pics of the welts/carnage? Were you looking down the barrel?

You should post specs of your set-up: ie, blade type, blade depth (or in this case height), carbide tipped or not, saw rpm's, etc. Should valuable (and I use this term loosely)scientific data be found, we will need to attempt to reproduce your findings.

Dam....I gotta wash the truck!

You F stuff up without the list, not that I am complaining. Carry on our wayward son.

Second, it ain't the PSI, it's the CFM.

I dont think there are welts. I havent checked. The one that pinged me in the back hurts a bit. There is no barrel. Its a saw.
Specs. RPM: 5400
Blade: 5.25" Carbide
Scientific Data: Ball launch trajectory is soley dependant on ball drop angle. Too far back, ball goes straight up, and assumably, into orbit. To far forward, ball hits saw mounting contraption, and is launched who knows where. Also to note: DO NOT AIM SAW AT A BLOCK WALL. When set to "rapid fire mode" this is how I ended up getting hit. All launches seem to produce a WICKED back spin on the balls. When they hit Asphault, the balls bounce in a direction that cannot be planned for.

What if all of TW paid him a set amount, say $5 a head. Wait, better make that $7.50, he is gonna need medical insurance. He could continue his story telling/scientific experiments permanetly, provided he has a working video camera.

Yes you could. Get an extension cord. I wish I had a table saw.
