I was using the miter saw to cut 2X6 boards for my trailer saw. I was cutting with all the guards in the proper position and finished the cut and raised the saw. The blade guard is designed to drop down to cover the moving blade. It failed to do so and stuck in the up position. I brushed my left index finger against the blade the cut me severely. I had to go to the hospital and was keep for two days and they had to cut my finger tip off at the first joint.
