    Yes,I am an idiot.While triming crepe myrtles today,I cut off the tip of my `bird finger` with my new felcos.Boy, did that sucker bleed.Only reason it happened because I got in a hurry,and tried to do several things at once.
    Lesson here,be careful,be slow and don`t be an idiot.

    Oh my gosh, that is terrible. I can't even stand thinking about stuff like that. Sorry to hear about that.

    dls - message received on the be careful! I know what you mean. Fortunately it hasn't happened to me but a toolmaker friend of mine lost the end of his thumb in a press a couple years ago. I work with machinery & power tools every day (welding & hoisting) and when that stuff bites, it bites hard!

    a guy who i knew a couple of years back had 2 fingers removed due to a log splitter. not a manual one, but a hydraulic one that slowly moves down the way. so think about that. and those things are normally really dull.
