So, that’s what happens…

when a digit is stuck into a nut, then the impact wrench that was driving the nut gets triggered. Ouch.


This digit belongs to one of our techs, and he describes it very much that way. (I didn’t do the repair, BTW). Looking closely, thread marks can be seen on the skin. He has some lacerations to the remaining digit, but it’s looking very good otherwise.


  1. That is very gross, Allen.

    Keep ’em comin!! :-)

  2. Was a piece of the digit missing? Its hard to tell from the posted photo.

    And Ouch!

  3. Nopthing’s missing; this is the palmar (finger print) surface of the finger.
