Respect the tools
I lost the respect i should hold for my beloved grinder chain!
I think i found it again…clamps, patience, and adequate lighting from now on!

OUCH, Christine!!!! I’m so glad it wasn’t worse.
Make sure you “get back on the horse” and use that grinder soon. I didn’t when I cut and broke my left thumb on a radial arm saw, and I just can’t stand the sound of that motor moving on the arm. Chills are going up and down my spine just thinking of that day…..

Sorry to see your “flesh wound”, looks painful! Tools are like old relationships; sometimes we get a little bit too comfortable until something wakes us up, usually painfully.

Once it heals and you forget about the pain it will become a battle scar you will proudly show off to other lumber and woodworking fanatics like us here and and they will show you theirs!!!! Trust me, it’ll happen!
On the sober side, awakenings like this, however painful, serves as a reminder that worse can/will happen from any kind of lack of respect, inattention, carelessness, horseplay…... you get the picture. Glad it didn’t take the thumb off, it could have easily!

It was a pretty nasty cut and I’m glad that it wasn’t worse.

The owner manager at our local tool store, before he even let me look as the chainsaw grinder attachment,informed me that you operate this with both hands on the grinder at all times, period. He has not steeredme wrong yet, although he has helped me empty my wallet more than once.
