1. Working in a confined space with powered cutting tool
2. Having both hands in confined space with powered cutting tool
3. Loosing control of powered cutting tool
4. No protection for 'off-hand'
The specifics: Both hands in small space, using Dremel tool with mini circular-saw blade. I was cutting out part of a fairing when the blade stuck. It had been doing this throughout the job, hot plastic sticks.
So I tug back on the tool, it comes free, but the back of my tool-hand found the sharp end of a #6 screw inside the enclosure.
Oww! Tool drops, blade 'skates' across my right thumb and finger.
All done before I could process 'the back of my left hand hurts'.
Today the scar is a faint white line, the thumb has a small 'numb spot'.
Thanks for the great stitching, Dr. G!
Helpful tip: learn to meditate on the pain of your healing injuries. Seriously focus on the hurt, let your brain 'know' where the damage is, and the healing will be fast, fast, fast! The brain/body connection is strong, but most folks shy away from pain, even avoid it. Pain from recovering injury is good, right and appropriate.
Besides, if it really hurts bad, chances are you learn somthing!
