I finally just decided to buy a sawz-all with a rough cut blade. That way I can put the piece in a vice to secure it really well and keep my hands completely away from the blade. I used to use a miter saw and nearly lost a finger a couple of times when the blade would bite and kick. Decided macho wasn't the way to go. Now my fingers are well away from the action.

I use a sawsall-type reciprocating saw from Harbor Freight to cut the logs into chunks. I clamp the logs into a bench vice.
Happened to me a couple of years ago with my 12" Hitachi Double Bevel Miter Saw. It kicked back HARD and broke the fence on both side of the blade and thought my hand was broken as well but it ended up just feeling sore for a few days. I like the B&D alligator lookin thing and also the bench vise/saws-all idea sounds very safe.

The guy I buy it off of craigslist cuts it somehow. He is missing a few fingers and an arm, but no complaints on the wood
