    CARNAGE IN THE GARAGE **PICS** Don\'t put your finger in the drill press...

    This is what happens when you get your thumb caught in the 1/2" drill press... I would not recommend it /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif. It tore the nail off the thumb, tore the meat under the nail off, and tore the nail bed out of the finger (I took it out of my glove and stuck it back on to go to the dr, but he took it off again.) and broke the thumb in 2 places, and dislocated it out of the back socket where it hooks to the rest of your hand. They removed the nail, sewed the meat and the nail bed back in where they were supposed to be, told me there isn't much to do about the 2 breaks, and that it was back in the socket where it was supposed to be but has some torn tendons and stuff. I did it on Fri night, Yes it hurt, yes it still hurts, but oh well.... sh!t happens!! I wasn't drinking any alcohol when it happened, but I sure drank some between the time it happened until I got to the dr office... /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    OMG! That is foul. I hope it heals, broken thumbs suck but that seems to be the least of your worries.

    One stupid question.....Just what did the Doc/ER staff think of you taking pictures as they patched you up? A camera would have been the last thing on my mind if that happend to me. You must have more of a tolerance for pain than me.

    Yeah, the ER DR. said that most people cry like a little biatch when something similiar to this happens... I didn't miss a picture! The lady was cracking up that I was taking pics while she was putting my I.V. in! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Helping a buddy drill a hole in the end of a seat belt. It started spinning on the bit, and the seatbelt twisted around my glove and pulled my hand in... pretty gay actually.

    Yeah, the doc thought it was pretty funny too. The only pics I didn't get were him installing the stitches... (he didn't want the flash while he was doing it).

    Thanks for the tip /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif... Oh, and we were drilling seatbelts because they needed bigger bolt holes in the mounting brackets...
