OK, so it’s not that big a deal.
I’ve been watching the threads on making chisel planes and thought, (in a faintly lucid moment), that I could make one too.
So I did.
Then while putting it together and adjusting the iron, the mallet slipped, hit the wedge and the iron slipped out sideways.
That was bad enough, but then…...
I didn’t want the iron to crash on to the miter saw parked nearby, so, Like a dummy, I reached out to catch the iron. Bad idea.
The iron, the miter saw and I arrived at the same time in the same place.
The iron hit the saw on the back end, bounced up and purposely took a chunk out of the tip of my thumb.
I swear it a conscious act on the part of the chisel. It may have been a finely orchestrated plan between the saw and the chisel to do me bodily harm!
It was a Conspiracy!
I tried to take a picture, but I’m left handed and the camera doesn’t seem to work right with my right hand. I wonder if it in on the conspiracy too!
Watch out for those mean spirited tools in your shop! They’re out to get you!
