I guess no body likes to talk about their own mistakes but we all make them.  Mine is table saw kick backs.  I was working in my shop on my table saw ripping a piece of material.  A friend stopped by to visit and in just a second of distraction the piece kicked back, missed me but struck my friend in the chest.  My apologies did little to ease his discomfort.  When ever we are working with our tools we need to remember their potential for disaster and stay focused on what we are doing.  As we become more and more experienced it is easy to become complacent as we work with our tools.
