Hando toe ek by die gedeelte kom waar jou vinger "crunch" toe squeal ek al klaar!

Ek is nou op my foon. Is dit jou duim se been wat daar uitsteek?

Sjoe!

Sterkte jong! Dit moet baie seer!

Baie baie baie eina!

Hi DustyRusty. Ja dit is. Hulle het op die ou end daai been verwyder. Was afgeknip deur die kettang.

En ja - dis F^&%$$N seer. 

Please guys - I hope the rest of you who lube chains with bike in gear learns something here. Do not do it !!

It happened so quickly!

And yes, I have been lucky - could have been my fingers or half my hand etc.

If it was me, i would have kept quiet and will definitely not post it on the forum.. :biggrin:

But on the serious side, I respect you for being open about it so that others can learn. Hope it heals well.
Trust that little voice in your head that says 'Wouldn't it be interesting if...'; And then do it.

Daai kan net moer seer wees. Hoop jy word gou gesond.  :eek7:

Hoe gaan jy jou bike draai? (of is jou flikkers aan die regterkant)?

Afraid the bike is going to stand for a while. Hand too sore to operate clutch. Thumb too big to fit in glove. And too bloody cold to ride without gloves.

Had to open the whole mess up to clean it this morning. It is now extra sore again. I was really stupid. Pity hindsight is 20/20.

I feel for you I know what it feels like as I cut the tip of my thumb off in a table saw. It is going to be very sensative at first it does get less over a long while but you never really know the use of a whole thumb untill it is gone. My thumb is the first bit to get cold and the last to warm up. I still get the feeling of shock when I think about it and it happened in 93. Good luck I hope that it heals well and the pain is not too great.
On the lighter side no one will play cards with you as you are not playing with a full hand.

So nou is jou desimale stelsel ook gef@k - tel nou in 9 1/2 's in plaas van 10'e. Blykbaar effe pynlik - vrou het haar wysvinger in 'n boontjiekerwer gedruk, my pa het sy duim in in sirkelsaag gedruk. Swaer het sy wysvinger met 'n 9mm afgeskiet.  So het ek geleer, maar dalk doen ek dit nog ook eendag...dit lyk my dis in die familie :peepwall:

Ja-nee kyk, Hando... ek weet eintlik nie wat om te se nie. As een ou na jou thread kyk en nie 'n ernstige les daaruit leer nie, dan verdien hy/sy nie tien vingers nie.

Kom kry vir jou 'n bike met 'n drive shaft. Baie veiliger.  :thumleft:

Versigtig met daai Hand-ou!
Jammer om te hoor, hoop dit word gou gesond en dat jy darem nog die flikker knoppie op daai 650 kan operate met 'n dui... >:D
Soos Jacko tereg se, upgarde na 'n shaft, dan score jy sommer 'n flikker knoppie wat jy one time met die regter hand kan gooi.
'n Ketting is 'n kak ding. Period.
Sterkte.

My high school physics teacher always kept his chalk in one hand and only worked with the other on experiments since he claimed the human brain isn't very good at multi tasking and he minimises the chances for shite to happen by working single handed.

The same applies to working on yourt chain:
You turn the wheel with one hand and spray chain lube or clean with the other.
Also never work on your bike while wheels are turning. The inertia of a turning wheel can easily break fingers if you manage to insert them into the right place.

I had to see my fair share of self mutilations by stupidity in my life. There is a reason for two hand safety switches, belt drive & flywheel covers and yes even side stand switches ;D
Bikes maybe should have centre stand cutout switches too for some hero to bypass it or to use a paddock stand to rid himself of some digits of his fingers ::)

Funniest ever and definitely taking the cake was a colleague working on a boot gutter clamp of a welding robot for the BMW E36:
Sticks his pegs into one of the clamps and holds onto one of the actuator rods where the pneumatic cylinders were supposed to go later. Clamping his finger he didn't realise it's actually himself causing the pain since rod and clamp had a number of levers & shafts between them reversing & translating the motion.
Thinking one of us is hurting him he starts moaning & whining at us who all step back from the machine laughing. Ended fortunately only in embarrassment  & silly jokes and a nice bruise.


Or the neighbour who got his finger into the paper feed of his printing press.
He managed to hit the emergency stop but he was caught. We heard his shouts for help and quickly broke into his printing shop :D

"Go over there and turn the flywheel! It will move the paper feed back!"

"Which way must I turn? Clockwise or counterclockwise?"

"I don't know, just try!
Ai ai ai! other way"

Heal well and all please learn the lesson.

Hi boeta. My beste raad op die stadium is....   sluk daai pynpille gereeld.  Hou die pyn onderduk.  As hy eers so erg begin klop kos dit meestal 'n dubbeldosis om dit weer draaglik te kry.  As jy het, sluk hulle maar elke 4 ure of soos voorgeskryf deur die kwak.

Sal aanhou loer hoe dit genees.  Sterkte
