Since i injured my finger on Saturday I have had time to think of how much it actualy sets you back and keeps you from doing simple evryday tasks. It was the left index finget that I got caught in my 4 1/2 " angle grinder with a knotted wire wheel on it. Reflecting as I sat in the ER I realized that I would not be able to use my new Gold driver for a while, not be able to practice the banjo, do much typing (two handed), simple task of buttoning buttons. closing snaps, etc, etc.. I guess the biggest thing I found was how prevetable it was and should of been as i reflect. Gloves probably would of helped, then again I don't know. Might have made it worse. Trying to hurry a project that will now likely set me back a couple of weeks. using care and caution when operating any power tool is always on my mind but as I said I was trying to hurry to get it done and documment it as I was going along.
I have a good high threshold of pain but this is almost at my limit to breaking. Even with pain medication it is very high. I guess I don't mind letting everypone know the i was dumb and careless if it just helps prevent someone else from doing something along the same line or something else.
typing this has been a chore and adds more to the lesson. Not asking for pitty just putting it out there for others to hear about and hopefully not have to endure the inconvienience or pain. Take care all. Roger.
