Default I'm gonna be behind on mods for a little while...

Thought I'd post something for everyone to see so I don't have to send out 500 PM's & probably forget someone.

I'll kinda be sidelined for most of my mods for a little while, ovals, 3rdBL's, bezel's, etc. due to an unfortunate injury the other day.

I won't get too gory with the details or post pics, but basically I drilled a hole into the end of my thumb & hit the bone.

I'm gonna try to do what mods I can one-handed & see how it comes out, but I know I'm gonna get behind on some recent orders.

Sorry for the inconvenience to anyone that has recently ordered anything that I need to make, but I'll get to work as soon as I'm able

Ugh... you didn't tell me it hit bone, ouchie. I still think you should put an LED in there tho.

Get to feeling better. You've got a good reputation around here, I'm sure people will understand if things take a bit longer than usual. Don't rush back into it, let yourself heal up.

I think the Doc called it the tuft of the bone.

Worst part was the second or so when the bit was turning inside my thumb... it took a second for me to pull the drill back & get my finger off the trigger, so it got several revolutions before I got it out.
Luckily it was a cordless that didn't have that many RPM's... an electric drill would have probably gone down to the first joint.

I've drilled into & broken several bits in my fingers before, just nothing this bad.

Could be worse, you could have lost the hand and had to get a hook like the dude in the Kingpin movie
