Thankfully not quite - I had enough trouble cleaning up the floor with just the blood.

Happily, still a she (I joked with the Doc stitching me up that I'd just done it for the free boob-tuck.)

It didn't really hurt that much - but I've always had a high pain threshold.

Thought so.... very funny reply to the doctor, but wouldn't you have to saw the other one so they match?

I'm glad you're alright Jules! It's amazing that you were able to walk to the hospital after all that. Even if it is only 5 minutes away.

Sooo.... did you pass anyone on the sidewalk and scare the heck out of them with all the blood?

Symmetry is highly overrated

Besides, they might get suspicious if I tried to get both done at once . . .

LOL

Na, there was no visible blood - I changed my clothes before heading to the ER (and cleaned my saw . . . I have my priorities ).

Jules, I am really sorry to hear about that accident.

If you don't own a router, how about I send you one as a belated Christmas gift?

Circular saws are nothing to mess with (as you now know) and I hope you NEVER tie the blade guard back again.

Here's hoping for a full and speedy recovery.

Don't worry Keith, I have pinned my last guard - from now on the guard will be thumbed back to the bare minimum (and no more loose clothing around power tools either).

That last part of the statement is incredibly important.

I can't tell you how often they drummed that into our heads in IE class at high school.

Perhaps equally important is using the right tool for the job. I still catch flack from the missus every time I bring a new tool home..."don't you have 10 of those already!"...well yes, but they aren't all the same.

Which means the router offer still stands.

I had a skilsaw whose guard would get stuck in the open position. If you set it down before the blade stopped rotating, it would chase you round the workshop!

Good one! I wonder if they ever got that cord untangled?
