Seems like there is always an audience when stuff like this happens.
I was at Booneville several yrs ago and the WM guy was sawing and forgot to lower the rear toe board. (not that I have EVER done this.)
About 2 dozen folks watching.

I keep thinking there has to be a way to wire in a LED to a micro switch on the toe board which lets you know when they are up.
