Bad machince

a couple of weeks ago one of my machines at work decided it didn't like me no more :cry: the belt caught my thumb and tried to pull me in but I wasn't going to let that happen. but I did walk away with this.

Nice!

I've been a line mechanic so I understand when people say that a piece of equipment tried to eat them.

Why the pins? I don't see the break or aven a trace of it. By the way, I'm a Maintenance Man at a hospital so I'm curious about BOTH the mechanical AND medical aspects of your injury.

Both bones where broke in half that I know for sure, I was moving the lower forearm while the upper stayed put. I was trying to keep them lined up so it wouldn't hurt so much. I don't know if you guys can actually zoom in but between the 4th and 5th screw is the break of that one, that's why the 5th screw is cockeyed, it's going the same direction as the break.

Hardware ! must have been clean brakes on both bones. You will now be able to predict the weather. Take it easy with the arm and let it heal up before using it.
Oh, btw, a mustang antenna top section works well to scratch the itcheys under the cast. :lol:

I was surprised that they didn't put it in a cast. at first I had a splint wrap with an ace bandage than 11 days after the surgery they removed the staples (25 on each side of the forearm) and gave me a wrist brace so I can exercise and rotate it. he said with the plates I have in there it isn't going anywhere so there was no need for a cast.
