Yesterday, my initial reaction was to go to the
but Im really quite thankful. After walking out to hop in my car I saw a massive oil puddle. I immediately wanted to lift it and see what went wrong and fix it. I scrambled to find my little rubber pinch weld adapter for the jack. I havent seen it since the move. I couldnt find it but did find my hockey puck i use as a spacer sometimes. Enter the chop saw.
I knew this was dumb, from first thought. I figured I could be careful and knew I could slice a groove quickly, evven if its a bit unsafe. wedged puck in, held in place with hand about 2 inch away from blade. first 2 cuts went well and i had just a bit more material to remvoe on an edge. Brain lapse, turned puck on edge to take the last bit off. WAM. saw comes to stop, massive pain in finger.
oh shit, did i just remove the end of my finger? Luckily no. but i did slam the fuck out of it with the saw throwing the puck right at it and squishing it.
TL:DR, dont rush to an unsafe conclusion. Im real happy and thankful to still have a finger.
now to fix that stupid oil pan with a very busted finger...
i dont think its broken #justthetip
