need photo of Garage/Shop injury

I was just editing this article in our wiki: Health and safety in the shop or garage. OneMoreTime started it, and Blazin72 made a lot of contributions. 41willys and myself have also made some additions, not to mention the users who added to the article anonymously, without registering on the wiki. So, it's coming along nicely.

Anyway, it could use some photos. I've been asking around for pics for some other wiki articles (Chrysler Hemi engine, Epoxy primer, etc.), and it's been working. So, for this article, I was thinking that a photograph of a hotrodding injury would illustrate it well, to show people the physical reality of what happens when you're careless about safety.

So, if you have a photo of an injury you've received from unsafe Garage/Shop practices (chopped-off finger, burn, scar, etc.), please upload it to the wiki or post it to this thread. To upload it to the wiki, you'll need to quickly register a username/password, but, once you do, the "Wiki Edits" count under your post count will increase. A moderately gruesome photo is fine, it will help to bring the message home for the numerous teenagers that will read the article.

Also, feel free to add to or edit the article. The more people contribute, the better it becomes.

Thanks.

My whole hand and part of my arm is a mess. It didn't happen in a garage though. It happened in a steel fabrication shop. My hand and arm went through a "plate roll". The big machines they use to roll steel plates into tanks (and whatever).

Don't know that the results of that injury in 88 would help, but is so, PM me.

Must be hard to flip someone off with that hand Sorry, don't have any pictures, and wouldn't look forward to contributing, and last thing I'd be thinking of is grabbing a camera.
Guess I've been pretty lucky so far, nothing a few stitches or bandages couldn't cure. ONe of my old forman, some people called him stubby. I don't even know if he had any full fingers on either hand. He worked on the punch press, but don't know if that was what he lost em from or not.

Well,


This weekend I learned that Tin Snips don't just snip Tin! (I think I'm going to call them Skin Snips!)

Like this?? nope not a problem at all, do it all the time,, best thing is to watch the expression on young kids faces when they ask what happened,, and I poke it up my nose and tell them that a bugger bit it off,,

This burn was done while checking an aftermarket (Vintique) Pontiac taillight that didn't work - due to a dead short. I was holding a bare piece of wire in a butt connector(dumb), and using a brand new Optima battery. My thumb had a similar burn but couldn't get a good picture of it. The socket was bad (and so was my post burn language!)

(Why no barnstar??)

The most common thing is safety Glass's and getting a small pieces of metal in your eye I've had it happen with and with out safety glasses the best way to grind is a full face shield with safety glasses, over head work is the most common and dirt and dust fall off what you working on and in you eye under you glass. Cut hand fingers from sharp metal. I have seen all of the above be for and had to take guy to the hospital. No pic's sorry! We did have a guy go up in fames being to close to propane fume soaking in to his skin an shirt and pants. Lite a smoke and boom!

Ha! I was thing of something else he can't do but I can't say it.

If you do flip someone of what does that mean? half as much and a normal flip?
