I was reading Soultrains question about the worst falls without injuries and it made me think about some of the other jobsite hazards we face every day.
What are some of the worst, or most interesting air nailer injuries you have experienced, seen or heard of.
I once shot a nail about 2 ” into the fleshy part of my hand while I was nailing a header joist to a floor joist. The nail broke out of the top 1/2″ of the joist (accidentally nailed too close to the top of the joist) and flew into my hand, I measured what was left of the 3 1/4″ nail sticking out my hand. Now I start nailing at the bottom of the joist so I can move my hand out of the way before I get to the top of the joist.
