What does Complacently mean

  • January 22, 2017 1:50 PM PST

    Well I fount out Thursday afternoon the true meaning of the word "COMPLACENTLY".......

    While working on a wood project on the table SAW I learned the meaning...............While cutting a piece of cedar long ways something went wrong, and it happened very quickly. My left (clutch hand) pointing finger was cut half off from the first knuckle forward, and my F%$# you finger was damanged pretty bad. The Droctor was able to sew up that finger, however the other part of my pointing finger remained inside my glove in my shop.

    Point being....no matter what you are doing it's really easy to become Complacent, and bad things can happen!!!!!!!

    I elected NOT to add a picture with this post

    Power tools take only an instant to bite you. My wife discovered what you did a year ago. 100% attention required. Heal Quick Kenny!

    Well damn Kenny I am real sorry to hear that you hurt yourself.  Hope all is healing okay.

     

    I know what you mean about becoming complacent when doing something that has almost become second nature.  I have had a couple of close calls using power tools.  Normally just going too fast and forgetting to do all safety checks because you have done it 1000 times before

    Hope you are recovering well & heal up good. Being complacent is never your friend ! How many times has it bitten all of us in the ass?!?! In one form or another.Like any good rehab do the PT and make sure to follow the doc's orders.Sending healing thoughts ! Take care of yourself.

    Well I just can't walk away from my Table Saw and my projects, so I ordered one of these from Amazon.

    Will give a review after receiving it.

    Well after watching the Super Bowl last night, I'm pretty sure the Atlanta Facolns now understand what COMPLACENTY means!

    Have a great day everyone.......oh except the city on Atlanta.

    That Micro-jig is a good tool. I have considered buying one. 90% of my table saw cuts are done with a home made crosscut sled which is inherently safer. Do a you-tube search and you will find many designs for them.

    Used the new tool yesterday, and it performs very well. Great concept, and I feel safe using it.

    OH yea by the way this is what I was making for the Wife, from old wood, when I mangled my fingers. I have been going twice a week to wound care and the digits are starting to look pretty good.

    Be safe out there

    What does complacently mean?

    It means the Patriots get another Superbowl Ring

    Good Idea, making cuts like that have always nerved me up a bit.
