Just managed to nail my finger with a compressed air brad nailer

32mm brad almost went right through, check out the bulge just in front of the first joint opposite side


Good thing I had a wife and vice on hand she clamped the head in the vice and with my free hand pulled my finger away.

After Application of coffee and antiseptic all was well, until tomorrow at least, when the pain sets in.

Oh WOW!

What an accident!!

Glad you got it out without too much of a problem…

I think you want to check when you last had a Tetnus shot…

I hope you’re going to see a Dr.

Hope the pain doesn’t get too bad…

Can you describe how it happened?
Surely you didn’t put it up to your finger & pulled the trigger! LOL

Take care.

How did it happen, well I am not exactly sure, however here is a brief run down.

I am making a Dolls house for my Grandaughter, and I was using 12mm MDF butt jointed at the corners, and held with Titebond III and 32mm 18 gauge brads.

My wife arrived with a cup of coffee of which I acknowledged with “I won’t be a moment”
I was holding the two pieces of material together with my right hand and checked the alignment of the gun and pressed the trigger, with my left hand next thing I know is the brad is in my finger.

So I would have to say it was a result of :-
a. Primarily inattention,
b. Possibly using the tool in the non master hand contribuited,
c. Kneeling down on the floor working as opposed to working at bench height.

As to how the gun got off the timber and into my finger is still unknown to me. I would have thought with the safety pressure lock it could not happen.

I tested the gun later and the safety mech was working OK.
The next day the pain set in, then the day after it was swollen but comfortable

Sometimes a brad can start out going one direction, hit something, and turn in direction out the side etc.

I was wondering if you had that happen and into your finger…

... doesn’t sound like it… looks like it may have slipped off of the wood as you pushed the trigger, and hit your finger…

Bummer…

Hope it’s healing OK…

You will pay special attention from now on… that’s for sure!!

Thank you.
