Yesterday I spilt both, A lot of blood and quite a bit of sweat.
Was cutting mitres on the sliding compound saw to fit edging to some
school desks I was doing up for the young fellows' school.
The edging was 12mm x 16mm pine. Still not sure what exactly happened
but I mitred the end of my left index finger.
All's still intact, although at the time I wasn't quite sure.
A quick walk up to house, a patch up with what ever I could find in the
medicine box, and blood all over the laundry, into the ute and a short
drive to local hospital. Along wait, and then lots of sweat when they ex
rayed the pinky to see if I had hit the bone.
Lucky, lucky Mort---- Nothing permanent, but no skin left to stitch so a
bloody big bandage, lots of padding and sent home to lick my wounds.
Them bloody machines, never give warning and never apologise ;)
have fun and keep the bloody didgets away from spinning blades.
To rub salt into the wound 4 new tungsten blades turned up today, 2 60
and 2 80 th, and I can't use em for a few days :(.
They were freebies as I did some minor warranty repairs on the new table
saw, which saved the supplier, Timbecon, a few bob in freight. Blades
are marked at $89.99 each.
