    Don, this was one of the stupid moments in my life. 2 weeks ago, late Sunday afternoon, I thought I would finish up some small pieces for a new grinding jig that I was making. Broke my own rules for the shop , never be in a hurry, and don't try to work when you are tired. Anyway, while trying to cut a small piece I got a little to close with my finger. Since we had just moved to Des Moines in July we weren't sure where the emergeny room was. Call to daughter and away we went. No stiches but I think I lost part of the nail and some flesh. Healing well as I can type now and I have finished up the jig I was making and it works very well.
    I guess, thanks for asking. I will talk to the little bird.

    As bad as it sounds, I am glad it was a minor injury. Hope you heal fast.

    well wayne it was in the air and it was about the same time so dont feel left out.. i too had a close one, and i too was making jig when i did it.. a 4"x4"x1/4" ply can dig in deep quick.. laid it open good and about a 3/8" deep flap.. put it back in place and taped it up and then got bandaged..its all better now.. and the new meat spot is tender.. i think it needs another 50 yrs of abuse to get caught up on the calusing.. so even younger ones can do dumb stuff too wayne

    Glad everything is OK I have been wondering ever since the little bird mentioned it.

    It really must be in the air. I also had a close one, but I knew it was probably coming as my blade had started to burn a little in the kerf marks (guess that is what I get for cutting aluminum with it). No blood, just a close call with a small kick. I did get a new blade after that, but need to look at putting a splitter on too. Glad to hear yours wasn't more serious.

    Glad it wasn't like mine. They really don't hurt that much when you do it. It's the day after, and for the next year or so.
