just 2 words, SAW STOP. Wish I had one now. I was using a dado blade, cutting a channel in purple heart. The wood shot out and my hand didn’t. From the middle of my pinkie nail to the tip is now gone. The left side of my ring finger, from the middle knuckle to the tip, is now shaved off. Both tips are history. The bone on the ring finger has been shaved down. I’ve got to go to a hand surgeon in the morning. There’s no skin left to stitch so it’s either graphs or clip the bone down far enough to fold the skin over and stitch that skin together. Boy does this hurt, sure the drugs are fun. But now there’s shop withdraw to overcome. USE YOUR FEATHER BOARDS my friends. My wife says if it’s graphs they should use my butt skin so I’ll still have hairy knuckles. MY OWN STUPIDITY. The only good thing is that it is my left hand, I am right handed. Sad thing is my dad cut off his three middle fingers from the nails to the tips. Since he passed away 2yrs ago I thought I’d continue his legacy. I’ll be fine tho. It sure is slow typing now.
