D’oh! Ow!

Just for reference, if you are cutting a chainstay that has some nice jagged edges from slotting it on the mill, and your gloves are on the other side of the room, you should probably go get them, rather than being lazy and using the hacksaw with bare hands. Ouch ouch ouch. I think I pretty much lost the whole knuckle, but I glued the flap of skin back down (as you can see, I did a really nice job of it) so maybe it’ll heal back on.

C’est la vie. No climbing gym for me this weekend. I can just imagine crimping down really hard on some hold and having blood start to spurt out of my finger.
