Posting on Stonekettle Station will be extremely limited for the next couple of days.
I sliced myself pretty good in the shop.
I’ve got 8 stitches in my right hand and a splint. And can’t bend or use my index finger, so typing is a bitch. Therefore there won’t be much typing for a while. So Sorry.
Right now my hand is numb, but it’s wearing off.
If you’re good, I’ll take pictures.
AFK until further notice.
Since a couple of folks asked:
It wasn’t a power tool that got me.
It was a 1” wood chisel.
The edge of that chisel is sharper than a scalpel, in fact the doc who stitched me up commented on how surgically precise the wound is. That certainly made things easier to sew back together. I nicked the artery though, so there was a lot of blood. Becky drove me to the Palmer clinic while I kept pressure on a wad of gauze over the wound.
Right now it hurts like Billy hell.
Thanks for the kind thoughts.
