i dont like saws.

earlier i was cutting some metal tubing and got ahead of myself and cut into my pinkie... Right now im on pain meds but i consider myself lucky because of the thick leather gloves i was wearing, i dont want to think about how bad it could have been. Moral of the story is PAY ATTENTION when using tools.

    When I'm cutting stogie stands using a miter saw, I set a finished stogie stand next to the saw while thinking/saying to myself, "If I were to accidentally cut a finger off, I will put my finger on that stand" How sick is that?!?

    Sounds more like saws don't like you :-o

    Seriously man, hope you bounce back soon and glad it wasn't any worse. You can at least still grasp a stogie, right?

    Decades ago, installed the interior on a 65' trimaran. Called it the MonsterMaran -- two stories in the main hull -- bunks for like 25. Not just your ordinary teak, but ash, cherry, walnut, each stateroom it's own theme. Even cocobolo. Had our power tools set up on a platform built over the transom of the starboard sponson. Where my Danish assistant Martin Aalso stuck his thumb in the jointer. I came running with a rag, hollering: "Don't get it on the woodwork! Don't get it on the woodwork!" Called him Martin Burger for a week or two after that.

    You want to lose a digit, choose a jointer. It's fairly thorough.

    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)

    Yeah, that's what our high school shop teacher, Joe "Three stumps" Smith, always used to say.
