That sucks. I stuck a torch in my forearm once, got all infected and hurt like a ***** Wish it was my worst injury but it wasn't. Hard to say what was worst.

Atleast it you won't miss work over something like that. Could be a lot worse.

That hamburgered up nice.

On my first day as a panel beater the first thing the tradesman I was working under said was
Rule 1. Don't put your hands where you wouldn't put your dick.

I have worked under that saying all my life.
I have blasted my fingers pretty good I was picking copper slag out of them for months.

I did the same thing To my knee when I first started blasting at the shipyard years ago. It to was steel shoot.

When I went to the doc to have it cleaned, they gave me a little brush and said we'll be back when you got it cleaned out......:rolleyes:

Ya ok, that rash hurt like he'll!

I was a little more carful after that. Ha ha ha

I was in a tank that I had to sit cross leg in, tight quarters...
