Default Damn, that hurt ! (not for squeemish)

Since I haven't had much work lately, I've been trying to make sure I get something accomplished every day on the shop project. So I'm out there today modifying my mitre saw dust hood. It's only about 45* in the shop. As I'm routing, I feel my nose running. I dipped my head to wipe my nose on my sweatshirt sleeve, and my hand slipped. A 3/8" roundover bit can do some damage real quick. Got a little bit of the index finger, but mangled the end of my middle finger. I tried to set the skin back in place and bandage it up. Damn, that hurt !

The tool don't care.

At 24k-30k rpm, that bit is spinning 400-500 times PER SECOND.

So in less than a blink of an eye, it would already 'chew' through things more than ~50 times.

Be safe, cause the tool don't care what it cuts.

It's a bad sign when you stop in the middle of an accident, with mangled fingers, to photo and post it to GJ!

Get that ring off your finger fast before it swells up and you need to cut it off.

The real way to know if you've hurt yourself badly is by the pain level. I find that when it is emergency room bad, that there is nearly no pain.

It was so painless last time I smashed my finger into bonesoup that I got to mess with the wife a litte. Honey, is my finger supposed to bend this way?

I agree, he should have taken the time and made a vid instead.

I had a similar thing happen with a power planer. Not pretty. Hope it heals up well.

This is what I got from an Anaphylactic drug reaction and a tread mill stress test. The hospital had to peel my toe like a banana and over the course of the next 60 days the soles of both feet lost ALL their skin. I had to relearn how to walk again since all the callusing was gone. FUN FUN FUN. All I can say is thank god for Diabetic neuropathy below my knees as that would have hurt like a bitch.

I've never really got myself hurt too bad. Worst one was trying to open a damn plastic package (the ones with the 1/2" of glue on either side) with a util knife. Slipped and practically threw the end of it into my big toe (right side). Straight to the bone, but I'm pretty sure the tendons were alright and whatnot, so I put some electrical tape on it and went to school the next day. (This was a few years back).

I did the same thing with the same bit. I had shout the router off and it was winding down when I stupidly reached for something too close. Probably half as bad as the OP, but a mess. And I was on a job and had to finish. Tape 'em up so you don't bleed all over the customer's house and get back to work.

Sounds like my friend.

Fractured his foot in multiple places (brittle bones ?) and walked around on it for several days. Many months to heel and did not heel correctly.
