my Dad never had much luck with his fingers - first he sawed off the top of his left little finger using a planer on a lathe (I remember being an impressionable 6 year old seeing him coming out the garage with blood spurting out his finger :shock: ) then later he sliced the tendons in his other little finger. They rejoined the tendon but it snapped again a few weeks later and now he can't bend his little finger.

My grandad chopped the top of his ring finger clean off (cant remember how) being a practical man (and a Doctor) he picked it up off the floor, wrapped it up in a hanky took it home and sewed it on himself! How bloody cool is that!!

You weren't trying to grind down an allen key to fit those 5 sided anti-theft skewers were you? :wink:

So what bicycle part were you trying to fix with an angle grinder?

I hope it was a 12" petrol one, those little ones are no good for repairing bicycles.
