A little over a year ago, I cut a nice slice into the end of my index finger with my rotary cutter. I went to the doctor for stitches, which he told me weren't going to help. He gave me a tentanus shot, sent me home with a bandage, and told me I would have been better off if I had cut the flesh completely off. It took forever to heal and I have a really nice scar for my efforts. I admonished myself and vowed to be more careful. Well, that didn't work. I sliced the end of my OTHER index finger completely off yesterday.
So as I sit here with my finger pounding away in pain, I'm wondering if I can buy chain-mail gloves to protect myself in the future. What do other folks do? Obviously "being very careful" didn't work out for me so I need to so something else.
