    Default Seriously Terrible. DO NOT look if you cannot UNSEE - --> Drill Accident

    This is from Reddit r/woodworking and /r/medizzy ... reported from Patientís fingers and connected tendons pulled out by a




    Patientís fingers and connected tendons pulled out by a drilling incident.


    The patient was wearing cotton gloves while operating a drill. He went to reset a drill bit and the drill caught his glove and pulled off his fingertips while simultaneously winding up the attached tendons. Replantation was not possible due to the extent of the injury. The wounds were irrigated and closed by forming stumps.

    One of the first things I was taught as an apprentice fitter-machinist, over 40 years ago , was never wear gloves around rotating machinary. I've had to politely tell a couple of WHS desk jockeys where to stick their "gloves must be worn at all times on site" rule.

    My father in law always said to me to not underestimate the drill press and never get complacent with them. Dangerous if not respected.

    The right tool for the right job, nitrile gloves should be used when use any type of machine that can catch you, they will give way

    Quite possibly - any drill could do it, but he'd probably release a hand-held before it got that bad.

    Mate's son was lucky. He held a battery powered drill near his head and clicked the trigger. It caught some hair and could have scalped hm if he hadn't released the trigger.

    I've never had anything bigger than 24V, but I was always able to stop it with my hand. Same with a corded Makita I have. I mean that's how I tighten the chuck, I pull the trigger until it stops.
    Maybe being 1.98m and 130kg might have something to do with it lol

    Agree. The kid was 4 yo at the time, though. No guarantee that he was even going to let go if he panicked.
