I have had a short setback to the building, having planed the end off my left index finger.
It was all very stupid. I was trying to take the corner off a small block of wood, and did exactly what you shouldn’t – I held the small block against the rotating planer blades. Of course, the block of wood was ejected by the blades, leaving my finger to bring them to a stop. Ouch!
That was over 2 weeks ago. It’s nearly better now. If you don’t want to see the damage, then don’t click on the photo below. If you don’t mind gore, go for it.
I treated the wound at home first, but when it was still bleeding through the dressing 24 hours later, I thought professional help was required. I was treated at the Emergency department of the local hospital twice before they referred me to the local Dressing Clinic. I am just back from that clinic for the last time. The wound is still a bit sore, but today’s should be the last dressing.
