and the saw takes a bite
« on: September 27, 2010, 12:02:39 AM »
Got lucky today. Only took a little chunk out of my finger tip. Didn't hurt too bad. That finger tip already had been injured by a cat bite years ago and had very little feeling. I was even using a push stick when it happened. Reminder to self, if you need a push stick that means you need to keep the other hand clear too dummy.

Yikes!  When I saw the title, I was afraid you were going to tell us you'd lost a finger.  Glad it was just a nibble.

Glad it was not worse. I lost a finger tip to a table saw many years ago and am still overly cautious working with them.

Every bit of it is fake, and mainly from household items. The puss and ridging are gelatin. She definitely passed.

WDH,  :D

Lee, sorry for hijacking your thread. How is the finger doing?

Not bad at all. Just took off the bandage to let it air out some. First time I really took a good look. Took about a 1/4 of the finger nail and just a pinch of meat. No where close to the bone. Very lucky. No pain to it unless I bang it on something. Only managed to do that about 3 - 4 times today.  ::)

Glad to hear you've escaped any permanent damage.
