My Dad did the same in a circular saw - I remember him coming out of the workshop holding the stump of his little finger gushing blood... I was only 5!! I'm not scarred...much :D

Actually it reminds me the first time I used the F-word in front of my parents, I spun a wheel on bike while cleaning it. I must have been 11, and I stuck my fingers in the spokes. Luckily only the expletive escaped and not the end of my fingers!! :D

Parents weren't best pleased for the language or stupidity!

Russ, that just bought back some horrid memories for me :cry:
I lost the end of my left middle finger in a spindle moulder a few years back :evil:
Imagine that picture, exept mine was straight accross like it was chopped in a guilotene.
Took some plastic surgary and about 18 weeks for it to completely heal up :!:
Still not as bad as some guy that works for me now tho... He's just had 2 fingers amputated at the middle knuckle and another at the 1st :shock:
Same bloody machine.... It doesn't matter what your doing, if you take your eye off the ball for a second[bang and its gone] :idea:
