Thanks it was actually a derivative from a situation at our club with a student who deadsticked so many times with a problematic engine the intructors refused to take him up until he got a new engine.

If ya deadstick three times just stomp on it...It's an easier death!

I was pouring a house foundation with my buddy and a guy showed up with his brother. He had a cast on one arm that went from his fingers to the top of his shoulder and a cast on the other arm from his wrist to his other shoulder. He was also limping ,had a neck brace on and two black eyes. After he left I asked my buddy what happened to him.

He was sheeting a roof of a house when he lost his footing and cut 3/4 of the way through his arm with a circular saw. He then passed out from the pain rolled all the way down the roof and off. he landed on his other arm and head where he managed to break his arm in 3 places suffer a major concucsion which has caused permanent brain damage.

I won't get going on nail guns.

Don't mention nail guns On a job site 2 years ago I shot my buddy in the belly with a 3 1/2" spiral nail. We were framing a wall on the floor and I just hit enough wood for the safety to come off, bang, right in the gut. No major damage though, just soaked it in beer(from the inside) and everything was all right On the same site about a week later the same buddy dropped a 2x6 on my head from about 8ft up. Said he didn't hold a grudge

I've been using CA to stop bleeding and hold deeper cuts together since I was a weee lad messing around in Dad's workshop. I had my first run in with an exacto knife and good ole Dad suggested gluing it back together. I thought he was insane and suggested we go to outpatients, he was out of patience and said he didn't want to wait in line two hours so that the doctor could use HIS CA glue on my finger. I think he may have also told me I may bleed to death by then to speed up my decision making.

So I've been glueing myself back together since! The nice thing about using CA is that it also acts as a hard "shell" which protects the area and lets you continue working, and also alleviates much of the pain!

Whatever you do though, DO NOT use accelerator!!!! The reaction between it and the CA gets REAL HOT!!!

VERY painfull on an open wound!!

Not to worry about a blockage Ted, unless you cut your way into a major vein or artery. The CA will just be sealing up the skin and capillaries that are damaged.
Last year when I got sliced with a skate to the face in a hockey game I waited until three in the morning at the emerg. The Dr. came along with a CA stick, sealed the wound and sent me on my way. I remember thinking that I could have done that in my shop.
