9 Good Fingers and 1 Not so Good
« on: March 17, 2019, 02:20:22 PM »
Out of all of the work that I do with saws, chainsaws, tractors, mills, etc, how do I manage to injure myself this time?  How about planting flower bulbs?  I bought a bunch of bulbs on close out from WalMart last fall.  I should have planted them in the fall, but it has been pure muck so I just got around to it.  I was coming out of Lowe's a few weeks back and saw an auger for planting bulbs.  I though that would help with this bushel that I had to I got it out yesterday and went to work.  It wouldn't fit in my3/8" Dewalt variable speed drill (which also has a clutch), so I chucked it in a Bosch hammer drill.  It would dig like crazy, but was just a tab bit high speed for the purpose.  I was zipping along until it hung in a root.  The ring finger on my right hand was turned in directions it wasn't intended to go.  I can still bend it and there isn't any bone stuck through the skin, so I finished up the job.  I figured the hospital would just splint it or tape it to another one.  Today, it is swollen from the middle knuckle back to my hand.  It is purple down into the palm, but it still works.  So, if you have one of these units, use a variable speed drill with a clutch.  It can do some damage otherwise.  It will dig a bunch of holes in a hurry.  The offender is below:

;D ;D ;D
