    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' .
    Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

    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.

    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 sorry to know about this accident but thanks God you are feeling better now.. the only thing thats bothersome is the loss of sensation in thumb.. what did Doctor say is this loss of sensation temporary or permanent.
    Bro plz give Sadqa.

    Very sorry about the incident.Just be thankfull everything was ok at the end and offer Nafal and give khairat.Things could get alot worse specially with the sort of machinery you were using.And thank you for sharing your experience with us,we are a community and share your pain.As Denovo Bro had said we should all be extra extra carefull when dealing with such machinery.
