Ouch is right! I've had cedar splinters under the finger nail that I pulled out with needle nose pliers...thought I was going to pass out, but knew they HAD to come out. Helping at the in-laws house a bunch of years ago, got stabbed in the webbing between the thumb and first finger with a wedge of pressure treated lumber. It broke off at the skin level. I could push it up and see the head of the piece, about 1/8" diameter, sticking out. Release pressure and it would disappear. Took a while, but finally got it out. Only issue in the shop so far, knock on my thick skull, was at the drill press. Took 5 stitches at the ER on that one. Funny watching the young nurse taking notes on the PDA when the Dr. opened my hand and blood spurted toward her at the foot of the bed. Doc closed my hand, looked at her and asked slowly..."Are you ok???" She nodded yes with her eyes about as big around as my fist. It was all I could do to keep from laughing. Doc looked at me, smiled and went on about what he was doing. I'll spare you the picture, but that is an excellent idea, print it out and hang it on the wall as a reminder to not be stupid. Hope you heal quick. Jim.
