  • Sawmill Saw 2, Bruce VERY lucky

    The blade got his first 2 fingers on left hand. First finger is rather chewed up but hard head didn't want to get it checked out or call his doctor for an antibiotic. Second finger is scratched along whole finger. Ripped his glove apart. He said it was his fault. He went to grab the board coming out from the blade and it kicked back pulling his hand with it. Did I say he was left handed? Good thing we're going to Texas as he couldn't do anything anyway for a week!!! What's that song he sings to me - I fought the saw and the saw won? LOL

    Oh no Betty - that's not good! Glad it wasn't worse but I would encourage him to have it checked and get an antibiotic "just in case" - especially since you will be traveling out of state! Definitely sounds like the saw won but glad it didn't win completely and he still has his fingers/hand!

      So sorry Betty. Take care of Bruce. Through the years of cabinet making, my dad lost several fingers.

        You and Bruce have my sympathy. Any hurt isn't worth a laugh, although Bruce has a very good attitude.

          He won't go to the Dr. At least there is a clinic by my daughter.

            Glad he wasn't hurt worse. I hope he does not get an infection as he could lose fingers. I can not understand why people avoid the doctor with such an injury.

                Ouch! Sounds like history repeating itself, unfortunately. 😰😰😰😰

                Seriously, at the very least he needs to use a topical antibiotic, and if you can hog tie him and drag him to a medical facility, so much the better. I think some things, like health, are worth throwing tantrums to protect, if necessary. We've become wusses about things like this, and don't care if anyone thinks we're making too much of something.

                    Just the thought of it gives me the hebbies. If I did that and refused a doctor June would give me an additional injury that would require surgical removal of a foot in my butt

                      He did buy the medical superglue to use. And he is up to date on his tetanus shot. So far so good. We passed Texas Mefical on our way to Sarah's so we'll go there if we have to. RJ, the weather is beautiful here. Supposed to get hot on Tuesday when we leave for home.

                          RJ are you off Culebra or Galm road? This weather is the best I've ever had here.! Getting lots of playtime outside with the grandkids.

                              We are at the airport now. Spent the entire time with the kids. The weather was perfect. We rode past the school on Sunday. Amazing how fast that went up. My daughter is about 5 miles down Talley Rd from the school. I am hoping to come back in January so maybe we can meet for lunch then. Bruce's hand is fine it's his driving that had me scared!!!

                                I did indeed have the blade in upside down. I was using some Bosch blades that I picked up from Lowes.
                                On Friday I got some Olsen blades in the mail. I hadn't ever seen any blades this thin. It was a bit of a struggle seeing the teeth, but I was able to feel the top and bottom of the blade...

                                It is a pattern from Neal Moore's book "Wildlife Portraits in Wood." He has some other interesting designs in that book and gives full instructions on how best to make each project.

                                Each of the pattern parts are cut from a piece of 12mm plywood. Then they are stained their respective...

                                I received mine yesterday but didn't get to look through until this (Sunday) afternoon. Carole had another great article in it. This one was on a Dice Tower.

                                When looking at the dice tower, I didn't notice the author until I was the next page and I looked back. It was Carole!

                                Very well done. Can you show a side view to get a feel for the depth?
