Yep, i just got back from the er, cut my right index an middle finger tips off, about a half inch or so from the tips. No hope for reattachment, ground up by the plainer. all this because i didnt use a push block. A reminder to all woodworkers: follow the ****ing safety procedures, cuz u can lose your fingers easier than you think. The procedures are not there to slow you down, they are there because they are important. I just wish i wouldve followed them too...

Sucks to be you, buddy.

Fear is the best thing for anyone working with machinery. Fear makes us pussy out. I'm still to timid to use the planer. I've almost lost an eye, and I've almost broken ribs from being careless.

Well, look on the bright side.

Can you imagine trying to build up the callouses if you lost the first half inches of your left hand fingers?

Table saw kickback?


No, the wood I was spinning on a lathe broke off and flew past my head, it litterally broke off at the base, the only thing left on the lathe was the plate and the screws. A day or two later a chunk of the new wood flew off and hit me right in the chest.

As for the eye, I was drilling out a stripped screw that was on a door knob and my 1/8th inch drill bit broke off and hit me a centimetre below my eye. I wasn't wearing my Goggles.

Did you you loose the joint closest to the (former) fingertips? If you didn't that wouldn't be so bad, since you have the same mobility, just a bit less length.

sorry man. My mom had a little bit chopped off her finger from a car door.

I lost my thumbnail with a small chance of it growing back. Luckily it did.

I did lose a toenail once, but nothing this bad. Good luck becoming the next great Maestro of classical. I wish i could feel for you, man. Good luck, you will surely become an inspiration if you can keep playing.

Man, that sucks. But at least its just the tip. I've cut the skin part of my finger off but losing bone had to suck. At least you can still play when they heal.
#37
Im goin to bed now. Thanks for everything. Ill post pics of the undressed wounds tommorrow when i get back from the specialist. btw, theyre extremely graphic pics prob, so before I postem, Do we have any rules on this board about posting graphic pics?

Also, I think i might be able to play using only my thumb in maybe a week, depending on what the bone specialist says. I guess I can start learning to fingerpick with my thumb ring and pink finger while i cant hold my normal pick with my index and middle fingers
