    Default Hand Accident

    I had a misplaced split with my log spitter. My hand was in the way. I've lost my thumb and index fingers on the left hand. Reattachment has been unsucessful.

    I'll update as I am able to.

    Bob, sorry to hear that.

    Always got to be careful when it comes to chopping or splitting wood. I almost took off one of my fingers a couple months ago when I was using a hand saw to cut a thick branch off a tree.

    REALLY sorry to hear about you accident. My father had an accident several years ago with a table saw... cut his right index finger amost off and the thumb was cut to the bone. The doctors were able to reattch the finger, but he has always said he wished it was gone as it ended up being stiff and always in the way.
    Anyway, hope all goes well with your recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Bob,
    Very sorry to hear about the accident. Years back I was chopping some wood and almost lost the tip of my index finger. I kept the log & axe all these years - the wife thinks it's pretty strange.
    Anyhow, best wishes for a speedy recovery.
