And this is related to woodworking?

You use your fingers in woodworking, And you are suppose to keep them away from the blade.

As I experienced 5 weeks ago.

Yeyoww! Karson, a little warning for us squeamish folk next time. The only up side of that is that you’ll have a constant “safety reminder” with you for the rest of your life. My father about 1/4” of his index finger bit off by a jointer and that’s what he called it.

it didn’t hurt a bit. I had no pain. I wrapped it up with paper napkins, sealed it with filament tape and drove to the hospital.

1 hr. later the nurse stated to unwrap my bandage that had no blood visible on it, and she yelled I’ve got to get the Dr.

All of the gauze in the hospital on my bed was covered in blood, but I didn’t loose a drop with my makeshift bandage.

A plastic surgeon sewed it up and the best I can figure what happened was I had finished the cut and was carrying the board back and I brought the finger into the blade on the bottom of the board. All the fingerprint was OK and both sides of the finger was OK but the nail was gone.

So It’s been sewed up and now to take my fingerprint I have to roll my hand over to get the rest of the fingerprint that’s on top of my finger where the nail used to be.

it looks to be totally healed up now but it’s real screwy to touch the top of your finger and think you are touching the bottom.

Everything that I touch now seems like the finger is in a hole.

Work safe and smell the roses.

I had osteomelitis (bone infection) in my left index finger last year. got it from a splinter. Prognosis was to cut it off. I opted for 8 weeks of antibiotic injections through a pic line in my heart. It caused C.Diff which put me in the hospital for 5 days with severe anemia. I spent november through February fighting c.diff (puts you on the throne all day). Today I’m back to normal and so far.. looks like I saved the finger. Needless to say it was a very, very long winter. The cure was worse than the cure so to speak.

Watch out for deep splinters, I do now.
