Work Related Injuries lol

Hey guys this is a reminder to be careful with air tools and power tools lol.....

i was making some cabinets for the kitchen today and was using my finish nailer... well i was holding the gun with my right hand and had a hold of the cabinet with my left...

lol the damn nail went all the way through the piece if wood i was nailing and flew like another 6 inches and went into my finger hitting the bone lol....

i didnt even feel it.. i thought it was the wood that moved but when i let go of the cabinet i saw the nail hanging off of my finger lol...

all is well...... lesson learned lol

good one raul. those finish nails sting don't they? I myself am a building contractor and i am not sure where to begin with work related injuries... anything from a few nails to the hand over the years, to a broken ankle from climbing over lumber piles, a skillsaw buried into my thigh... the list grows bigger all the time. but i love what i do, and do what i love, wouldnt trade it for anything. just an opinion, but it beats sitting in an office behind a desk all day. c'mon guys, i'm sure there are some good stories you all have to share with us.

my buddy took a 16 penny air nailer and put one in his knee while on a ladder...
he couldn't climb down so he had to use a cats claw to pull it out then climb down and get patched up.

I have a tendency to smack my own fingers with a hammer, had a hammer drill get jammed while drill a 1" hole with a paddle bit. The drill twisted around and broke 3 bones in my hand. Also hyper extended my knee at the resturant I work at while carrying some plates. Broke 250 dollars worth of plates when I fell.

Im a plumber and Electrician by trade. We used to do alot of work on Horse barns. People out here spend more on their horse barns than their own houses. I've had many injuries while doing this line of work. I once fell off of some scaffolding while hanging some metal halide lights 30 feet up in a barn. That could have been bad if I wouldn't have landed on a stack of hay bails. Also got my nose broke by a Kangaroo... Don't ASK

bad news about the knee raul. kinda like the ankle i broke, after a long day on my feet, it sure lets me know it isnt as strong as it once was.
