Wow, Dude you got away lucky. I've been a machinist for thirty odd years. I've seen coworkers loose fingers, set themselves on fire, crush fingers and hands. I'll save the gory details. I my self suffered a similar injury, only not jagged clean cut through skin, muscle and tendon to bone. Get this, clearing spirals of hardened stainless steel from from the saddle, bare handed because my hook tool was 10 feet away on my bench. 18 stitches and now I can't fully straighten my middle finger. Please dear viewers; don't take shortcuts, think before doing; easier said then done, I know but anyway be careful.😉✌

I remember in high school, some guy in my Manual arts (woodworking) class somehow got a tool jammed in the lathe. It flicked around, sliced the kids hand, did some tendon and muscle damage, and jammed the machine. He had surgery for the tendons and had a bunch of stitches. I’m unsure whether it was his fault or the machine malfunctioned. Looked pretty nasty, and there was a fair bit of mess around the machine.

ohhh my brother had a similar injury once. He was wearing work gloves and throwing leaves into some kind of machinery... and it grabbed the tip of his gloved finger and yanked in the glove... and one of his fingers. He lost a finger tip, about half the fingernail, and it still looks a bit wonky years later.

Complacency is one of the most dangerous things in any shop. We spend so much time around these machines we start to feel like we are too much of an expert to have this kind of thing happen to US. No matter what everyone who doesnt follow every safety rule around these machines will be reminded of why they are in place at some point. Its better to be reminded om video than in person so thank you for sharing your mistake. Takes alot of bravery to teach people a lesson from your own mistakes.

If you have an injury like this you should go to the ER. Even if you think you can handle it or you think your ok. You are the worse person to judge that; your not a professional and even if you think it's not your judgement has been clouded by pain and the sympathetic nervous system

It's not just helicopter pilots. Basically any pilot who has enough hours that they're becoming comfortable with the checklists and procedures of flying are the ones most likely to become complacent and commit errors. I saw a show or read an article that stated that most small plane accidents happen when the pilot has passed a little beyond the novice stage. I just looked, and the FAA has a paper on General Aviation flight hours vs accidents. It has a lot of statistics jargon, but the short version is that accident rate increases until somewhere between 500-1000 hours and then begins to decrease. https://www.faa.gov/data_research/research/med_humanfacs/oamtechreports/2010s/media/201503.pdf I'm sure this is true of many dangerous activities and professions.

Ouch... Watching you, and how you move and behave and think, I can’t help but relate and assume you probably have some element of ADHD. I have it quite badly and it does tend to lead to these sorts of injuries; usually I hit my head but there have been other things. Just wanted to say it wasn’t stupid or your fault, sometimes when hyper-focus hits you can lose the larger context of actions.

I work as an HVAC tech in the Midwest, I’ve been burned by refrigerant, I’ve been shocked a time or two. I work on 120V and 240V residential equipment. Thankfully nothing huge on the commercial side. I’ve been to some highly specialized training multiple times, and at this facility there’s an instructor with two missing fingers. To clear the air he tells us what happened. He was working in a room high up in a building where there was a belt motor running (probably running a blower). So he didn’t want to have to go however far it was to the breakers to shut down this motor, one thing leads to another, as he’s working he kind of loses balance and puts his hand out behind him to catch himself. The belt grabs his hand and pulls it to the motor wheel and all the way around. So his hand made a rotation around the wheel between the belt and wheel. Lost his pinky and ring finger in the end.

I'm not an electrician, but I did the first year in the electrician line at the vocational school where I went. I was 17 at the time. I remember one day our teacher had brought with her a generator or something that generated high voltage with no amperage. And everybody had to get zapped at least once. She explained that the most dangerous kind of electrician has never been zapped. I think the same thing goes for machine work and building things. You'll never be able to fully evaluate risks if you've never gotten hurt.

My husband is a safety coordinator in the big factory he works at.

Everything from oil rig fires to people losing fingers in conveyors. I am now a pain in the arse to work with because I pester everyone about not obstructing fire extinguishers or gas bottles, keeping exits clear, and being anal about minor hazards.

Oh and fire. People do not take fires very seriously because they think it will spread slowly. Within 6 seconds a fire in a closed average room can make it hot enough to cause full burns. You ever stand too close to a bonfire? Imagine that heat not having anywhere to go. People have died in nightclub fires and their bodies were found still seated with glass in hand.

There is a technique to clean the shafts while its running with a rag, you need to create a sort of triangle, with the corners being both your hands loosely holding the rag (as to let go of it if it catches) and the shaft you are cleaning. All of this done on the lowest RPM, and slowest drive. Thanks for spreading knowledge about machinery and the respect it is due!

Hey Adam, I know this video is ages old now so you'll probably never see this. But I wanted to say that I recently injured my own finger with a knife (without betraying too many of the nasty details, I also almost lost part of my finger). I wanted you to know that it was very comforting to know I wasn't alone, and that these things happen to everybody, and that quote, "it's when you're overly confident in something that you let your guard down," really helped me to not feel too terrible about my silly injury. Cheers, here's to a less bloody 2021!

oobligatory, pls whenever you work with machines, remove all dangly things from your body, that goes for pulling away hair in a manner it cannot be grabbed as well as actually taking off jewelry and necklaces, and not just tugging them under a shirt. as for limb loss, my cousin's grandpa (other side of family from mine) was missing his middle finger and parts of the index and ring finger on one hand. he was an electrician and i always assumed it was a work-related accident. come to find out that his family used to have a rotary iron at home. if you've never seen these, they are two massive wooden rollers with fabric running inside that will take in clothes, and with added heat flatten them. they're smaller now, but these were the 1940s. my grandma has an older one (early 1990) and i've used it a few times as an adult, but as children, we weren't allowed in the same room when it was turned on. bc of exactly the same thing that nearly cost adam his finger and that cost my cousin's grandpa his: fabric on rollers is incredibly grabby and once it has hold, you have a split second to react. my cousin' s grandpa was a child and stuck his hand in there to help and his fingers got crushed. he was lucky his parents hit the emergency break as fast as they did or he would have lost his hand. my grandma was always like, be careful, this is dangerous, no, i will show you again how to do it, and i thought she was being ridiculous, but that story really opened my eyes. when you look at it, it doesn't seem dangerous, it's fabric on rolls, what's the worst that could happen? well, you could lose a limb for a second's inattention.

I was going to comment as a pilot when you mentioned the helicopter pilot statement, and there are two things I learned getting my pilots license (fixed wing, not heli) that 1) pilots have two buckets to draw from, experience and luck and when the poo hits the fan you hope that the experience bucket fills up before the luck bucket runs out. Beyond that there is something called the killingzone where pilots that have about 100-200 hours tend to crash the most as they become comfortable with the aircraft.

I got my arm caught in an industrial slitting machine while cleaning the moving cylinders with a kerosene soaked rag. A process I was taught to do when I hired on and took the job. It did a de-gloving of my upper left arm. I did not get it caught while cleaning it, I got caught when I stop and turned to the right to allowing my gloved left hand to come in contact with the spinning rollers. My point in sharing all this is I too was ashamed and angry with myself for a long time. By the grace and mercy I kept my arm! I am an amateur artist and maker who is inspired by people like you!

Many years ago (over two decades ago, in fact), in high school metal shop, I was working at a milling station which was positioned perpendicular to a lathe (which looks very similar to yours; though maybe 'the next size down'), which my buddy was working at. Someone walked up to show me something and we started talking about the piece (I don't even remember what it was). My buddy, at the lathe station, turned around to face us (his back to the still running lathe) to join the conversation. There was a loud, brief POP sound (like someone getting that perfect crack with a dry towel; though much louder). One minute he'd been wearing a loose-ish flannel shirt, then next minute he was bare-chested with what looked like a sunburn.

I see a bunch of other people sharing their similar workshop injury stories, so I guess I could share mine as well. This actually happened relatively close to the upload date of this video. I was working in a machine shop, I had just cut a piece of material for a project, and was then going to deburr said material using the belt-sander near the saw. The belt sander itself had a little table attached directly to the machine perpendicular to the belt. I had rested the piece on the table and pushed the burred edge into the belt at a 45 or so degree angle (which I know now, not to do), with my right hand on top of the back-end of the material, to prevent it from moving up. Had the material been thicker, I never would have run into this problem, but the material was only like 3/8" thick or so, I can't remember exactly. As soon as the material came into contact with the sander, the sander grabbed the material and yanked it in-between the belt and the table. Somehow my hand went with the piece and so my right hand's index and middle fingers were sandwiched in between the belt and this piece of material. Thankfully, this belt sander was pretty old and not that powerful, so the pressure actually stopped the belt-sander's motors entirely and I was able to shut it off before calling for help. But not before some damage had been done. My co-workers had to grab a crowbar to bend the material away so I could get my hand free. The injury itself thankfully wasn't too bad. My fingers were pretty squashed, but there were no broken or exposed bones. It skimmed off around 1mm or so of skin and took a while to heal, but all I have to show of it now is a scar on my index finger. A lot of what Adam said here I could relate to, like the scariest part being checking the injury to see how bad it was and the random spikes of adrenaline the rest of the day/week. Or how most injuries happen when you become too comfortable with the machinery. I was scared of getting close to that belt-sander for the next month.

"I'm never not cognisant that the table saw could harm me significantly at any given second." Sooooo.... I was cutting wood on the table saw, as i had often before. For 30 minutes, an hour, 1 and a half... I got into a grind of putting wood on, cutting, putting it away, putting the next piece on. And then I suddenly was missing half my left thumb. Well I wasn't missing it exactly it still hung on a tiny bit of skin... So yeah, I absolutely understand. The moments when you are doing something you have done a hundred times before are the most dangerous, not when you do something rarely, then you are as you put it very cognisant. As no one had ever heard of Covid years ago and because I was bleeding like a butchered pig I had to call an ambulance. Gladly that doesn't cost much where I live.
