Trying to rush to finish a job. Yes I was using a push stick. I reached down after making the cut to power down. The small piece of wood kicked back and like an idiot I tried to stop it and hit the blade spinning at 5000 rpm. My research discovered my finger hitting the blade was like a car hitting a block wall at 1000 mph. So my fishing will be hurt for a while as well as my work. I need a handyman or carpenter in my area to help finish scheduled jobs.

      I cut my finger bad today also
    3. Oh I'm going fishing this Sunday. I went back to work the very next day. I'll just have to reel with my right hand and hold the rod with my left. I banged ...more it at least 5 times everyday at work. Bills never stop so I have no choice.

      Did that with a new razor blade in a utility knife doing the soffit on my house. Jumped off the square and filleted my finger down the bone to the second knuckle. ...more Worse part about it was the needle the doctor put under the nail on the part that was left. Good luck. You will be back fishing soon
    6. Thanks everyone.

      Ouch!!! It's surprising how much a finger can heal from though. I had a metal cutting fiber disk come apart on a grinder one time and take the tip off my ring ...more finger. Nail fell off and was ugly for a few months but pretty much looks normal now. Can't feel the tip still though. I hope it heals up good for you!!!
