    A couple of weeks ago I was knocking the races out of a hub and the edge of the punch sheared off, swinging an 8lb hammer. The punch is 1.5". Anyway my hand followed the punch and one nail somehow managed to catch a stud on the way down and tore it part way off.
    I have tried valiantly to save it but now that what is left is sticking straight up in the air and attached only by what is under the cuticle it looks like tonight will be a Jose evening..
    I hate having to take out a nail.. But after a few rounds before and after it isn't so bad..
    Ever wonder why people spill the beans when ya start tearing nails out ...

    I dropped a 19 inch computer monitor off a 5 foot high shelf onto my middle toe a couple months back...the nail was mashed and it fell off...I'm not sure what hurt worse, the nail part, or the blunt trauma from a 80 lb monitor hitting the toe. Its grown back now, but it still has a big black mark on it.
