Down at A&E, only gone and cut myself.

Ok so I know many of you have done this but I always thought it would never happen to me.

Just went to trim some graphics and gone right through my finger, my own stupid fault for not using a safety ruler, from now on, no graphic will be cut unless with a safety ruler from now on.

If you're using a standard ruler, you have been warned, go buy one now.

Sitting down a&e for I'm guessing all afternoon, it would of easily paid for itself.

I did this not long ago tip of my thumb.
It has not started to feel normal again after 3 months.

Bad part is I was trimming excess vinyl from a piece of composite 8(.

Plasters were to small so some tissue and vinyl wrapped up did the job till I could get it looked at.

Turns out that it wasn't that bad.

New blade and just took a massive bit of skin.

Give it a couple of months & it will be all forgotten about & the safety rule will be stashed away somewhere :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nippy sore.

Done that a couple of times years ago when rushing and a normal steel ruler...worst was new blade, hard and fast through the finger nail too - I don't recommend having your finger nail pulled out so they can stitch the bits of finger together.


It'll heal well though ...give it a couple of weeks... don't be too tempted to pick it when it gets itchy!

These days I'm either freehand cutting along weed boxes or using a selection of 100 to 200mm wide 6mm acrylic straight edges to trim with. Stops the blade jumping up and you can see through them!

Safety(ish) first

Been there, cut that!
I always keep some superglue in the first aid box, for temporary fix.
Instant bond, no sting :smiles:

Re: Down at A&E, only gone and cut myself.

I done something similar the other day. First real hot day of the year & I decide to wear shorts.....but did not notice someone had left a stainless sheet hanging out a rack, so I walked into it. At first I thought I had scrapped the back of my leg. 1.5" gash & several stitches later as it was so deep.
