    Drilling...

    ...through your thumb hurts.

    Don't do it.

    I've done similar (palm) before. You're correct, it's no fun. I hope it was as relatively minor as mine was. Heal up soon!

    Fortunately only 3/32". Working overhead, and bit snapped. Dumb. At the base of the nail - but missed bone. Sure leaked a lot though.

    Just reading this makes me cringe.

    Early safety training has aided me through life, except when riding a bicycle.

    Ouch. Sorry to hear Rob. Hate that split second when your brain catches up and you realize something bad just happened! Take care of it...those things can fester. You know, that wouldn’t have happened if you were using that nice new replica egg-beater drill you’re tempting me with

    I hope it was only a minor flesh wound, and will heal quickly.

    Through and through. Bet you won't do that again. Heal quick, Rob.

    Puncture wounds are the worst.
    Heal up quick.

    On the flip side, your PMV11 chisels get so sharp that I've cut my fingers on a couple of occasions without knowing until I saw the blood!

    I am not so sure that you would be safe around one!

    A new product line testing technique?
    The significant problems we encounter cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.

    The penalty for inaccuracy is more work
