    Just cut my finger accidently on the rotary cutter. Even though the cut was slight, I feel so dumb. Anyone else ever done that??

    Did a month ago only it wasn't so slight. Still tender and sore. I got guards for my rulers now.

    At a class a woman shared she cut it so bad, she had to have lots and lots of stiches. She uses leather gloves now...

    Yes, unfortunately I have to admit that I cut my left index finger pretty bad. A part of it had to be reattached. :O But that was a few years ago. It healed up okay. ;D

    Yep! I've cut my fingers a good number of times and once very deep still have the scar! I use a June Taylor shape cutter now . It cuts down on spilled blood.

    I've nicked my finger, but more often I've cut part of my nail off. Try explaining "rotary cutter" to a non-english speaking manicurist... lol

    Bought this the other day to help hold my ruler steady and hopefully prevent cutting accidents (had one small one). So far I like it but the jury is still out. At least I can use it near my bathtub to help me get in and out after my next knee replacement... Anyone else use these?

    Cut my pointer finger on my left hand a few months ago at a retreat. Thank goodness did not have to have stitches due to the way the blade hit my finger, but still had to have a bandage for awhile until it healed. Bought a Klutz glove the next week.

    I have done the dumb dumb of leaving it open, then blindly grabbing for it. Ouch!! Painful reminder to close it when I put it down.

    Another accident to avoid is rotary cutting with bare feet.
    I know a lady that had to have stitches on the top of her foot from the rotary cutter falling fast and hard on the top of her foot.

    Yep, , just did this recently, fortunately my son was home to drive me to urgent care! They put some foam around my finger that would encourage skin to grow back. It's healing nicely, but won't be quite as evenly formed as it use to be, lol!

    Yup, did mine a few years ago, 7 stitches later I now use a guard on my strip rulers. I also keep me cutter sharp.

    Ouch, been there done that so many times my sweetie bought a ruler guard and stuck it to my main cutting ruler. He says I'm such a klutz one day I'm going to lose part of my finger. Hope it feels better soon.

    Just did that about 2 weeks ago. I bleed so fast I could not find a scrap fast enough. It happened because I was so tired and trying to finish quickly with a dull blade. So while I was 'sawing' on the strip I got my finger tip and the fake nail. I learned my lesson the hard way.

    Not fun. My husband keeps saying that I need the Klutz Glove. I know I wouldn't wear it though.

    Um......only once, and really bad....never again!!! Sure made me start paying attention to what I was doing. Don't feel dumb, we've all done it -- sooner or later. Take care and hope you heal fast.

    Some time ago I didn't close mine and dropped it off the table onto the top of my bare foot. Yup what a mess.
    Lesson learned!
