Got a couple fingers between an air hammer and a Dodge pitman arm.
One finger tip was in 6 pieces, the other was bone meal from the
knuckle out. Over 2 years before I had a nail back on that one. It
still hurts when I even think about it.

That sounds truly unfortunate. Sorry to
hear about that.
My second car, the inspection station said it
needed a pitman arm. 1974 Dodge Dart. They got
the job started, and then went into 10 day spring
break shut down. I got to drive car number one
for ten more days while they were on vacation.
You didn't work at Elmer's, did you?
Back to the "did you ever" thread, it's 3 AM and
I'm wide awake. Thought I had the night sleep
thing worked out, but guess not.
You definitely need better gloves. I blew snow yesterday wearing some Home
Depot work gloves. I was OK when I was shoveling and moving my hands a lot,
but the unheated handles of the blower made my fingers d*mn cold.
Today I wore a good pair of ski gloves. My hands were sweating and it's in
the single digits here, wind chills around neg 15. Heated blower handles
would be nice, but good gloves work pretty well too.
Went to Cal's in Cedar City the other day. The supermarket for cowboys
and ranchers hereabouts. If you can stick it in or on a cow or chicken,
they got one.
They had a clearance rack, and I got a pair of $30 gloves for $6. The
ticket was $8.99, and I was happy with that, but they rang up at $6, so
I dummied up. Camo. High cuffs. And when you put them on, you can
feel the inside heat up. Might use them when we start logging, but they
are not waterproof. Gotta go get me a really good pair of waterproof
ones. A guy cannot have too many gloves. Or tools. Or guns. Or
fishing poles. SWMBO disagrees, but she has her hording categories, too.
