So my index finger on my left hand got bit today. Was holding a work piece in place with my left hand making sure to keep fingers out of the way when a brad ran into an unseen knot and took a turn. Entered the tip of my finger and angled in just pushing up against the underside of the fingernail. The knot popped out with the rest of the brad attached, lucky me. Needless to say I was thankful this otherwise boring project suddenly had all the spiciness I could have wanted. Grabbed the linemans pliers, placed the finger behind a stud with the offending brad past the edge so I could give it a good yank and it came out on the first yank. Have to confess I did utter one expletive when it went in, but that was it. My advice is, don't do this for kicks. Playing should be "interesting" for a couple days.
