    Yip -- I've read posts where others have done it and I admit, I've suffered absolutely NO jealousy or remorse that I hadn't done it.....but today is a different story!!! Yip, I cut the tip of my left middle finger almost off with the rotary cutter!!! :oops: It cut almost thru the tip and all the way thru the nail!!! I did it two nights ago...the skin on the finger is barely hanging on....noticed when redressinig that the skin is turning black. hmmmmmmmmmmmaybe I should have gone to ER!!! :twisted:

    I have to admit -- I type fast - clocked at 98 wpm in my hayday.....now I am hunting and pecking and it's AWFUL!!!!!!!!! :thumbdown:

    been there, done that.

    bled quite well, i'm sure.

    hope you heal quickly.

    keep that finger tip protected - it will probably be more sensitive than the others.

    Maybe the doctor would be a good person to visit!

    Oh no!!! Is the fingertip turning black because it's bruised? If not, you need to see the doctor asap!! :-(

    Sounds to me that a trip to the docs would be in your best interest. Wouldn't want you to lose the finger or worse.

    If it is turning black, time for the doc!
