The Magicman Ugly Foot Club
« on: June 24, 2019, 09:42:37 AM »
I just joined!
I was running my mill by myself Saturday, went to take a board off the mill, it slipped and BANG, down on my foot. Nothing broken (that I can tell) but it sure had me hopping around on one foot stringing together some new words!

What kind of shoes were you wearing? just curious. Glad you came out with all the parts attached.

I have been having trouble with planters foot lately so I have been wearing tennis shoes. I know, should have been wearing my boots, that would have helped a lot.

Sorry Jon, I had trouble with plantars for many years (over 30, I lost count) while working on concrete floors. Good quality footwear is a major help, but when you have to dig a small 'pebble' out of the ball of your foot every week or two it can get pretty miserable. That can be treated, I believe it is actually a virus. Mostly I just went for the mechanical method, but was miserable a lot of the time. When I moved up into engineering and design, the problem slowly faded, as did my knee problems. They were replaced by carpal tunnel syndrome. ;DI found a natural fix for that (proper exercises several times a day), and that never came back. The Doc wanted to cut me open. I haven't seen that guy since. ;D I also started gaining weight, but for some reason that disappeared around the time I started cutting trees, making firewood and got a sawmill. The last Doc I saw said I was in perfect shape for a man my age. I asked him if he knew I was 29?  ;D

 Yeah, the sneakers explain the damage. I had thought the slab came down behind your steel toe and caught you. That has happened to me. The problem with steel toes is that you know you have that protection and tend to work with it. I use my toe as a log chock quite often, it's a bad habit. If that log ever over-runs the toe up onto my foot I am not only in a world of hurt, but I am stuck under a log with nobody around to help me get out. An 1,800 pound log can go a long way before it stops rolling, even if my leg and will power are telling it to stop. Nearly got bit again just the other night.
 We gotta be careful, you got lucky although I doubt you feel like a winner today.

   Can't we put this in the restricted topics so the rank and file aren't exposed to such! :o :o

    Reminds me of when I first got my mill and took it up to my son's place to saw some stuff for him. He and I were carrying a 6' log about a foot in diameter and he dropped it on my right foot. I don't know if he broke any toes or not but it felt like it and I lost the nail off my big toe. To make matters worse I went back a few days later to get the mill and when we went to hook it to the truck he dropped a landing gear right on the same spot. electricuted-smiley

   I hope you heal up soon.

Was in the kitchen one evening using a sharp pointed knife.  Only socks on.  Knife dropped out of my hand and point first downward.  Before I could move my foot it stuck my big toe between joints.  You talk about hurt.  There is still blue air by the counter.  Sore for quite a while. But healed up fine.  Do chefs wear steel toes?

Yesterday the toes turned purple but otherwise it's not too tender to walk on.
I don't think we'll have to amputate.

When I was a boy and would hurt myself Mom and Dad would act like they were trying to make a hard decision and then wind up saying "Well I don't think well have to amputate."
