When you buy an Aerobie (a wonderful flying ring invention that still is the thing furthest made and thrown by man), the first game you learn is “fetch”.
What I found out not long after my first Afinia print is that the first thing you really learn is to wear the damned gloves they send you.
Two prints after I got the Afinia, I sported two cuts on my fingers.
And after about 20 printed things, now, I have learned some. But not much.
I even cut myself – twice – through the gloves, when using the putty knife to pry the object off its rafting.
This morning I left one of the gloves downstairs where I was cleaning up an object last night. So I just decided to push away from my hands and fingers. But dammit, I still managed to, using a smaller chisel, slice through my thumb. The thumb contains a fairly main artery, and so this bleeding still hasn’t stopped fifteen minutes later.
I’m keeping pressure on it until it clots, so I can apply a band-aid, but, man…
And this was after I promised myself I’d be more careful.
