    I just had this happen to me. I am a professional Woodworker / Carpenter of some 40 years with very few incidents and no serious accidents. I had just finished a cut on my Bosch Table Saw with no problems but I must have caught the spinning blade when pulling the push stick away and it exploded, leaving a hole in my hand and shrapnel on my stomach. I was wearing safety glasses or the pieces of plastic could have gone in my eyes.

    In my opinion, Bosh needs to replace this item by either using a material that is more stable or not providing a push stick altogether. I am hoping I’ll be one of the lucky ones who still are able to use my hand once heeled but I would suggest if you have this stick, do yourself a large favor and throw it out.

    Hmm, so much experience and using the plastic ones.

    Never used them. Wood made – by me- are the best. It’s well known the plasticky ones have a tendency to explode.

    I too use wooden ones. I feel more comfortable using them.

    Yes it doesn’t hurt to have couple push sticks around. Pretty easy to make and the bonus it uses up scrap wood.
