Its not exactly gore. If this stops someone making the same mistake, all the better.
I can't say I like those photos, but I like your attitude toward the accident aftermath. What bone/s have been damaged? Was it Radius, one of the Carpals, Metacarpals? By your description, I'm excluding Ulna...
But still... METAL AF!!!
If i'd shown a pic of the wound, that would be gore and would put some people off building for life..
based off his description it's probably palmar metacarpal 1 or 2.
Its the one that goes to the thumb.
Btw this is the board I stated with, its Pippy English Elm. I only ended up with a small portion after Mrs Pondman stole most of it for a coffee table .
Oh I was just making a joke. This is a really good warning. I'm already doing a safety assessment on my shop.
One thing I would mention is to be really careful and keep a real good grip on trim and palm routers as the lack of any real weight on these small tools can send them into orbit if they bite too hard or catch a snag.
that's the point of sharing stuff like this, i suppose, but what mistake did you make, exactly? It seems like a freak accident, which is honestly horrifying
Damn, I wish you the best and a quick recovery.
I cant really put finger on what happened (no pun intended), it was a brand new quality router bit. The mistake "i think" i made was not having a firmer grip on the router but it all happened so quickly that i cant be sure. sorry for the lack of caps folks but i'm typing with one finger.
Glad you're ok! I almost feel like the wound picture should be posted. Might make people think twice about their router safety. I know that sometimes, i get a little relaxed with my router work.
DUDE! Sorry to hear that.
Here's to a speedy recovery!
Yeah wow, hope the healing process goes smoothly! Always enjoy seeing your builds, and usually learn something from them as well.
.......wishing you a speedy recovery!
Sorry about the accident man! Best wishes towards a full recovery! Definitely an eye opener!
Sorry to see that dude.
On the other hand, did you offer up any stew Mac tools to aid in the injury repair?
Ouch man -- Literally and figuratively. Get well soon. Even injured, you're still:
OMG dude. Hoping you're well soon!
