That got your attention, whilst modelling earlier a knife rolled off my desk and guess what became imbedded in my leg and I started to bleed and it b****y hurt. I'm now changing my knifes, I had some given to me the type with a hexagonal top, didnt use them but now I will, let still hurts, as for my wife all she did was call me an idiot, polite version, she then tended my wound not big but it was deep, a new blade. Oh well.

You do know that's one of the entry requirements needed to become a true mogeller? Others include, but are not limited to: gluing various parts of your anatomy together with superglue, spilling paint/glue on your new carpeting, gluing together the exterior of your kit while the interior sub-assemblies sit there on the bench giggling at you, gluing 'handed' parts to the wrong side of the kit .... the list goes on.

Ouch indeed, that had to hurt.

I knocked a knife off the bench not long ago. My instant reaction was to grab it but thankfully thought better of it and it stuck into the floor like a javelin so I can imagine it's effect on flesh!

Once, I was trying to pry a part loose from a model and the knife slipped, stabbing into my left thumb, lengthwise just to the left of and behind the nail. It went so quickly that I didn’t even realise it at first and it didn’t actually hurt, so initially I didn’t think anything had happened. Then it started to bleed, and on looking closer, I also found a much smaller wound on the underside of my thumb. Guess I had a lucky escape in that I pulled the knife straight out again instead of it slipping forward.

I've been lucky so far only suffering camoflaged pyjama trousers from paint spill. Learnt from an early age at art school about the usage of cutters and how to break them by pressing down with the thumb. You get better control holding the blade than the handle. Whittling pencils with a blade was good practise. We tied rubber bands on anything that could roll to prevent accidents.

Cheers,
Richard

Yes done the cutting oneself, the best is searching for a part and then finding it stuck to one of your fingers with CA, and the usual sticking the fingers either together on to the bench mat .
