View Full Version : DIY gone bad

So i was itching to get wooden grips on my cz 75 so decided to make a pair myself.
I had a drill but to cut wood, i needed a rotary blade.
somehow through a "jugar" (not a good way to do things), i managed to put a rotary wood cutter on a drill machine.
The blade was loose and wobbly.
with my right hand i held the wood piece and with the left i held the drill machine to an elevated ground and also pressed the drills button.

half way through the wood piece, the blade got loose and carved a nice deep cut in the muscle under the thumb which also provides strength to the palm while forming a fist.

The entire muscle was cut in half, veins and nerves damaged.

2 days hospitalized, 8 stiches, got a surgery for 150k and lost the sensation in my thumb.
all bcz i wasnt careful, didnt use propper tools.
I only share this so people can learn to be careful and not suffer as i did.
DIY is fun but with proper tools only.
here's a few pics

That is a nasty cut bro, a juggar never should be tried with something rotating at 12000+ rpm but we all sometimes overlook safety measures, proper tools, proper safety wear etc in excitement while doing something related to our hobbies; for that I always consult with someone (mostly my best juggar partner 12G) before doing something NOT RECOMMENDED, in this way I get better solution or word of caution.

Although you went through lot of pain suffering n a big scary scar but still being a Muslim I will say ' offer Nafals n thank Lord Almighty for saving you from something worst' .

12000 rpm :s ...
now i understand why it only took a split second to have blood sprayed all over my white car, which btw i thought was PAN Ki Peek when i returned home from the hospital.

and yes i cant thank allah enough for the treatment i got in time, which most people cant get.

Oh My GOD Bhai... Thats freakin terrible...

nothing cool abt it but this looks better to me esp after me seeing blood rushing out of the veins.
Thanks to my dad, he tied my thumb to my palm which prevented blood loss.

Very sad to see and read.Always use precautionary measures before making such kind of experiments.
Dont worry Inshala your thumb will be fine just give some 'sadqa' like Aquarius brother has advised.

In our wild pursuits we often act without much brain storming and get cranked with meager resources available at that time. I am sure if you had the right tools available the situation might have been different and thread would have been labelled about the invention you were about to. Again your thought about preserving your injury through camera with a view to generate a meaning full lesson for all of us is greatly appreciated under that stressful condition. We all wish for your speedy recovery with a pray to save all of us from such crisis.regards

A.O.A, Hasbee Allah Naimal Wakeel! What else we can say, but we can learn by our mistakes. Really appreciate your will to share it with us, so that we would be very cautious. May God S.W.T bestowed upon you a complete and full recovery.
I remember an incident( also related to our hobby ), we were in Sialkot range and Denovo87 was putting up a target for handgun and couldn't look at the shattered glass in the dirt ( may be put up as a target by someone) resulted in a cut on his thumb.
http://i818.photobucket.com/albums/zz108/Gaza_013/picsrendom100.jpg

So the conclusion is:
(1) We Pakguners should not use such a tool which has potential to inflict a serious injury without proper guidance and without taking precautionary measures.

(2) We should not use glass bottles as a target.

Dear Haider Shah has summoned up this affair quite nicely. Dear where have you been nice to see you back. A.H

I am shocked to see the hand .
One mustn't do any modification without proper safety equipment.
A bad idea to install cutter blade on drill machine .

usually cutter blades are installed on motors which are stationary like the tile cutters .

Hope you get well soon and do give some alms.
it is known to keep you away from harms way .

I have had a very similar situation when i tried using a grinder with a plastic circular holder and glue "raigmaal" over it. The plastic broke on my first attempt to peel wall paint off and the plastic bits lodged into my left hand knuckles. Thank the stars that it hit bone instead of my eye or any other fleshy parts. No more "Jugars" for me after that incident. Now my fist looks like I have been in bar fights all my life.

Major Ouch. I have the same Gerber scout. If it were to be thrown away.. I .. I I guess I will simply buy another one.

Waisay Gerbers are not to be trifled with. First time I handled the scout. I cut my finger as well. Not this bad though.
