My neighbour had an altercation with an air compressed nail gun yesterday. I give her credit, she's a doer when it come to building things and isn't afraid to use power tools, unlike me, who stands as far back as possible when someone else is using tools that bite lol

She had one last nail to put in the timber garden arch she was building when disaster struck. The timber moved and the nail drove itself into her thumb, right through the bone and just pierced through to the other side. We called the ambulance and they carted her off to the big town where she had it removed, was pumped full of antibiotics and has returned home with 6 weeks of healing ahead of her. She was very lucky there's no nerve damage or other permanent damage. I don't think she'll be using the nail gun in a hurry again!

Until next time
