while roofing a building using a paslode express nailer i had an accident, i had nailed a 2×2 down too hold the felt down from flapping in the wind and when it was time to take up the 2×2 i used my claw hammer to pry it up my hand was on the rafter and i slipped my hand slipped up the roof thumb went under nail and lost grip of hammer 2×2 still under preasure sprung back down on my hand and the nail passed straight through my thumb, i let a yelp and pulled the 2×2 back up and slid my thumb off the nail, covered it up and continued working… it ended up i chiped a bone in my thumb when the nail passed straight through. i was lucky it was a straight nail and not one of those extra grip ringed nails ;)
