That's a strange coincidence. I had to go to the hospital on Sunday because my
hand slipped while using a chisel and I made a very deep cut into my thumb. I
guess I was lucky the chisel was sharp because the flap of skin layed right
down and with pressure there was minimal bleeding. They used a type of super
glue on the thumb to keep it sealed for a few days. So, been there, don't want
to do that again. I felt stupid for making such a blunder. But it happens.
Anyone else cut themselves within the last few days?
I sliced'n'diced myself when I first tried out scary sharp. Innocently
turned in my chair from table to buffing wheel, left hand moved a
little faster than right, just bumped the plane iron. ouch. More of the
same over the next few days, til I learned to use much wider, slower
motions. Scar tissue in the tip of my index finger hurts when I press
down on thin chisels. Constant reminder, it's a Good Thing(TM) ;)
