My stitches are out, the wound is healing, it's covered for a further five days, however (there's always a but) I have less feeling in the tip above the cut. This is NOT about me, rather me hoping I can encourage just one person, and hopefully more to take a little more time when working with power tools, and tool really, to reduce the chance of injury. I've had a few injuries in my time, and the healing process is "painful". Rehab if needed is worse, teaching the body to do something again, or simply waiting to be able to do something again is something I do not like having to do. Recently I was doing some welding, so I was wearing a long sleeve shirt, I got the angle grinder out with a wire brush attachment on it. It was hot so I didn't have my shirt tucked in, and my shirt got caught in the angle grinder. No injury, though now the shirt is a reminder of what not to do. Tuck that shirt in, use safety gear like glasses and ear muffs. Use gloves where needed, wear enclosed shoes. Get help lifting things that are too heavy for one person to lift. Clear the floor to prevent trip hazards. Do dry run test cuts to make sure the jigsaw, circular saw, router etc doesn't get caught up on anything. DO IT SAFE TO STAY OUT OF THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT PLEASE.
