      I suspect you'll also have to either replace the blade or have a few teeth replaced. With a really good carbide tipped blade, hitting a plastic/fiberglass push stick usually means a visit to the blade repair place :-( Another reason for spending the time to make some decent wooden push sticks.

He then proceeded to demonstrate how effortlessly machine tools cut right through it. I was impressed by the nice, quiet bandsaw cutting it when it was waved at the blade.

The shop instructor was German and he used a stainless yard stick as a teaching tool whenever a student started to insert a hand into an operating machine to remove chips from the work. We were all given wooden dowls to do this with in order to save fingers and such. As an adult working in a production shop we had a vietnamese worker with long hair who let his hair get caught in the work. He lived but lost about 1/3rd of his hair and scalp before the guy at the next machine could kill the power on it.
