I had a major kickback while ripping a piece of oak on Thursday the result of which can be seen in the attached images.

Thanks for posting that, as they say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Presume it was your avatar that fought back. Guess there will be a totally re-appraisal of how to tackle a similar job next time.

Hope it all heals up without any complications.

i had a "minor" chopsaw accident about 3 weeks ago, similar sort of mess but only one finger

when the practice nurse dresses it INSIST she uses Mepitel, it does not stick to the wound

REFUSE to have the wound dressed with Jelonet. Unless you want to experience the pain of removing it.

I hope you heal quickly, When you do something like that it's often the frustration of not being able to work for a while that is most annoying (after the initial pain has worn off of course).

Take care

regards

I hope it heals quickly and without any problems.

I for one am all for posts like this. Next time I am in the workshop, I will be thinking of that photo. Might prevent me from having a similar experience.

Thank you and get well soon.

oooouucch! :shock:

Hope it heals soon and not too much long term damage, you seem to have no tip to your fore finger?

Very thoughtful to stop and take a pic when its the last thing on your mind!

Thanks for all your good wishes. Hopefully they've managed to save the tip of my index finger as there was not much bone left. The second and ring finger have both suffered nerve and tendon damage so am likely to be out of action for at least a couple of months which is a real bummer.

Nasty. It might be educative for everyone if you explained more about how and why the accident happened.

Hope you heal fast, and well.

Better than watching "Casualty" :lol:

Seriously, much sympathy and good wishes for a speedy recovery. When you feel up to it, a description of how it all went wrong would be useful.

OH MY GOD Col. That looks a mess. I have to admit also you are a braver sole than I as I would be on the floor passed out. I can look at other peoples blood but not my own. :shock: Hope it mends soon mate and with no lasting damage.

Thank you so much for the reminder...

I wish you fast recovery

I know that kickback occurs at "faster than the speed of light" but, do you have any idea why it happened so, we can watch it next time

Thanks
niki
