I'll post some here in a minute...

I'm a cabinetmaker by trade. Last year about this time I had a fluke accident that broke my finger; year or two before that zipped a large portion of my thumb off my right hand, coupla years before that zipped another large portion of my thumb off of my left hand...I've smashed them, drilled them, and cut them, but fortunately I still have all of them...

One of my co-workers said she cut her toe this weekend while slicing vegetables in her kitchen ... barefoot ... and dropped the knife. I suggested steel-toed work shoes in the future.

You need to change your screen name to "Starfish"... you keep cutting them off and they grow back.

My great grandmother had a boyfriend who was a butcher. He retired at the tender young age of 90. He was very proud of the fact that he had all fingers whole and intact.

I'm a sheet metal worker with over 31 years in the trade. While I've had my share of stitches, I too have all digits whole and intact.

I'd suggest a change of careers, possibly an office position but then, you'd probably soon be posting about
the hazards of paper cuts ......

recluse, many years ago my Dad removed both joints of the first and second fingers of his right hand while working a piece of molding on a jointer planer. It wasn't pretty. You're fortunate.

Could have been worse, I suppose. I won't post the link here because it's disgusting, but do a search for "gixxer forum chain fingers" only if you have a strong stomach.

I have had moulding pieces blow up out a shaper before, and stick through a sheet of 3/4" plywood. I have had pieces blow up and damn near impale me.

A lot of the time it's when you lose concentration, for instance, a few months ago I had someone walk up to the door of the shop I work (we keep it locked because of the neighborhood) and and try to get my attention by screaming and yelling while I was on the table saw. He almost got a stick up side his head. Some of my other incidents were when someone was stalking my wife and when my sister was murdered.

This time someone had broken into my house a few weeks ago and I'm trying to put a case together because the cops are useless in this town and my wife's a nervous wreck. Hit us for some $15,000 in jewelry and other items. The guy who broke into the house is a known felon who lives around the corner and thumbs his nose in the face of law enforcement; has told others in the neighborhood he's wants to come back for the TV and computers.

My line of work you can't drift off...:thehand:, but sometimes life just loves to play with you....:nono:

That is some rough stuff right there. You would think that everyone knows that moving chain + rag + hand = BAD IDEA!

I used to rub dirt on ant and mosquito bites. Always seemed to make it feel better.
