    Sorry for the pun but this is what happens when you disrespect a power tool.

    I turned my PC off of speed six and went to sit it down. Seems that the adapter that allows me to use my rotary backing plates on the PC opens up a dangerous gap. My finger slid into this area catching the counter weight. It broke the tip bone, crushed my nail, and caused seven stitches worth of damage. Hurts a ton and is a biotch to type with!

    The pics.........

    If it makes you feel any better: I had been working with a new detailer a few years ago who had even worse luck. His third day on the job, after two days of 1 step forward/2 steps back, he caught a Makita rotary on an antenna. The spindle rode up and he managed to stab himself in the eye with the top of the antenna, and put a tooth through his lip when the Makita hit his chin- simultaneously.

    He went to the hospital and never came back to work. :dunno:

    Looks like my finger when I caught it in the safe door when I was a restaurant manager.

    That definitely looks like it hurts. :noes: Hope it heals quickly.

    Hell yeah it could. My friend lost a finger in a jointer.

    If you're not familiar with what a jointer is, it's a woodworking tool with two planing blades attached to a spindle that spins very fast, to chew off the edge of a piece of wood to make it smooth and flat.

    One good slip was all it took. What was once a finger turned into a spray of red and white in about half a second. We joked afterwards that he should get some Yakuza tattoos to go with his new permanent Shocker hand sign, but we were both a little too shaken to laugh much.
