I hate bows. No, I hate cheap bows. I was cutting a new tip block today and the block rolled...and my chissel decided to take off my fingertip. Not straight down...just a nice slice through 1/2 of my fingernail and out the tip. Not fleshy enough to have anything sewn back on. Damn near the most painful thing I have ever done though. Passed right out (I have a weak disposition to pain ) Jack and Gary were my hero's today, they really acted fast and did all the right things. Thanks guys. So, to all my luthier friends and bow rehairers...be careful with those plugs!!!
