Daniel (the injured one), sorry to hear it was as bad as it turned out, it will be rather inconvenient for a while.

Well, look on the bright side. Your thumb won't get tired if you decide to try hitchhiking :D

Sorry to hear about your accident. I squished two fingers on my right hand about 6 years ago at work. Had a load of sheetrock on the forklift and I got off the lift and caught the control while trying to put a stick under the sheetrock I was setting down. Fork and load landed on my fingers breaking the bone on the tip of one finger and splitting my middle finger open from the pressure. This time of year sucks now cause there is nerve damage in both fingers and the pain from the cold can be unbearable at times. We have a steam boiler at work and when its real cold and my fingers bother me I can actually put them right on the steam pipe coming outta the furnace and let them there for 20-30 seconds and not even feel the heat.

A couple of years ago, while on a ladder toe-nailing a stud to the cap stringer, I ran a 3" into the palm-side meat of both my index and second fingers with the point just into the
side of the 3rd. Luckily, I missed every bone.

Climbed down the ladder for plyers to remove it and my helper passed out cold.:bigrofl:

Sorry about your injury!
A few years back I was trying out a new dewalt drill at one of those tool rodeos, in a contest to see how many screws you could put in a piece of wood in 30 seconds or so. i ran screw number 9 or 10 into my hand, but not real deep. the girl running the event said come on, lets get you to the doctor! I told her no thanks, its ok, and backed it back out with the drill. She just about passed out.

You know what they say - better the thumb than the ole joystick.

Well no one says that... Made it up. Kinda comes from the movie Weekend at Bernies, though

I stitched up my middle finger again the other day.Was taking one of my 5hp briggs engines apart to put rings in it and while scraping the block gasket I slipped and cut the heck out of myself AGAIN on the Razor sharp edge of the oil sump.
I swear I cut myself on every engine I open up.And not a little cut either,usually when I get cut on an oil sump it's down to the bone.Dang they are sharp.
I wrapped toilet paper around it and some duct tape and finished what I was doing.

When it's cold out you can see every scar on my hands as they turn a nice dark purple shade.
