Everything was going great yesterday, no worries at work, no traffic on the way home, daughter went to bed early which means more time in the shop/garage.
I've been cleaning and rearranging since winter's not that far off and the LOML wants to put her car in the garage when it gets cold. So I'm redoing my benchtop drill press mobile unit and I take it off the base that its attached to. I set the DP on a shelf, lightly put my hand on its base as I bend down to pick up the nuts that fell to the floor....and bam!! The DP falls off the shelf onto my head. It must have not been completely on the shelf I immediately feel blood rolling down all sides of my head. Grab a filthy rag and then second guess putting the grease/sawdust/dirt to my newly opened wound, drop it and grab the roll of paper towels. Before I go inside to freak out my wife I actually go back to the DP to see how much damage it done. The top is broken (cheap delta plastic), but no other cosmetic damage.
I go inside tell my wife we need to go to the ER. She starts shaking and calls her mom to come over since our daughter is asleep. We get to the ER and the first thing after checking in that I hear from the nurse is, "I gotta tell ya, it's going to be a long wait, at least 2hrs" I say whatever I'm hear what else am I going to do? My SIL comes to get my wife to go home and releave my MIL after about an hour. I sit there another 2.5 hrs before I get in to the DR. 3 staples and another 1/2 hr later I'm out the ER door at 12:30am and home. I would show pics, but my wife didn't want to look at my head...it can't look to good. Long night but I'm back at work...for now, head is throbbing.
Now, how to I check to see if my DP's quill is still true and not out of alignment?
