    Could you at least check your spelling before you make a topic please... If you don't fix it up within the next day and I see it unfixed. I will be locking this thread.

    I'm talking about your topic title. Your actual first post was fine. Limit the use of emoticons please, not many people find that appealing on these forums.

    Just adding to what Littlebro05 said,

    Emoticons are fine. When used properly they help define what the user is intending but when they are over used can become quite irritating, especially the large animated ones.

    (Eg. A smiley shows that the user does not intend to come across as grumpy)

    Maybe we should remove the large animated ones, they kind of suck anyways.

    I got my first Nerf modding injury last week.. a blood-blister on my finger when it got caught in the wire cutters (not the cutting part, lower down)... it made my eyes water I can tell you that lol.

    I'm all for spelling and grammar but surely we don't need mods having a discussion on what is acceptable and what isn't in an otherwise legitimate thread? 9 posts thus far and 2 of them on topic...

    Anyway, never done anything decent, but regular little cuts. Unfortunately it's always the little ones that seem to end up right around the nail that always hurt way more than their size would indicate. After playing with blasters on Sunday I still have 3 small cuts on my hands today.

    Do you mean like accident to self? Because I've made plenty of accidents during modding, but the recipient often has been the blaster

    When I used this cheap 2 part epoxy I was essentially gassing myself due to the fumes it was emitting. Horrible stuff.

    Post  Ungmon Sun Oct 16, 2011 11:27 am

    First modding injury occured when I purchased a new hot glue gun, it was a large one so I wasnt so used to the heat so when I applied it to he gun I used my finger to smoothen it out I burned myself, hurt like crazy

    Another scenario when I pwned myself was when I put a C836 spring in my LS, I then got the plunger rod assemply and pushed the little black piece down to see just how powerfull the spring was, when I finished I released the black piece then a little bit of the skin on my left hand got caught in between the black piece and the plunger rod.
    Eventually I had to pull my hand out which ripped my skin and caused my hand to bleed, it's still healing.

    Just a few days ago I decided that I did a crap job of an AR removal on my nitefinder, and wanted the hole to be bigger. So I undid everything and got it all ready but didn't have a charged drill. So I thought I'd just use my dremel, what a smart idea.
    I put on the sanding stone (Pointed at the top and thicker at the bottom) and I thought it would be perfect. So i shoved the dremel down the barrel using an extension, did this a couple of times. The accident happened when i pushed the dremel in too far and the sanding stone gripped on the barrel so the barrel started spinning in my hand at high speeds. I freaked out and threw the thing. Ended up with a nasty gash on the side of my finger from the plastic nubs.

    I have had plenty of 'spin' injuries, where your out drilling something and it spins and cuts your hand, when I was cutting the shell of my nite-mav with lino cutter, my hand kept slipping, by the end of it it looked like I thought it might have been a good idea to stick my hand in a blender.

    Hahaha - sounds like some good life skills/lesson's have been learnt.

    The best advice I can give is get a small hobby vice/vice-grip plier's. Really makes drilling things much easier and safer.

    Also, try and always use a sharp knife. Sounds stupid, but it's always a blunt knife that cuts the worst!!

    Personally, having my finger jammed in a brass breech with a heavy spring load has to take the cake. Along with numerous burns from hot glue guns and soldering iron's, but that's pretty much par for the course being a boily.

    Cheers,

    Accidents with moding nerf guns XD Empty Worse

    Post  Ungmon Sun Oct 23, 2011 10:39 am

    I just had the worst accident EVER. I was making myself a SNAP and since this project was taking so long the hot glue gun had been left on the entire time from start.Then when I was hot gluing on the handle the glue was so hot that it dripped down onto my hand (thumb).

    I instantly dropped the SNAP and shaked my hand like crazy (normal human reaction to intense pain) the hot glue was in fact so hot that it melted a small portion of my thumb and severely burned the rest of it.

    I was originally going to post pictures but after the pictures were taken I decided they were too gruesome so show to the public so they will remain private.

    Not that theres any competition going on nor am I proud at all of the incident but I think mine is the most painful posted so far on this thread.

    Not exactly modding related...

    Last night I was prepping a blaster for paint, and the wife asked me to start the bbq.

    Cranked it on, and before I could do anything, the regulator failed, bulk gas came out of the burner's, and instant ball of flame... haha.

    On a serious note, half my eyebrows, eye-lashes and body hair from the waist up is now gone (should've been wearing a shirt) - and I probably won't be needing a hair-cut for a while.

    If there was a competition, I think this would be a contender.... hahaha

    Cheers,

    I've had a horrific hot glue burn too. Back in the day when I use to make stingers I would hold the cap and fill it in because I didn't have a decent work bench. So when I was holding it and placing hot glue in it. The cap flipped on to my thumb blistering my finger. Doesnt' soudn as bad as yours but it stung for days.

    ALWAYS use a low temp glue gun, they are cheap, and will never burn you to badly.

    I used to work at a place where higher temp glue guns were used and pretty much at least once a week you'd end up getting hot glue on your thumb or finger. our "solution" was if hot glue landed on you, wipe it off VERY quickly, as in as soon as it's touched skin you'd have an instant reaction to wipe it off on your apron in one swipe. of course it's not the best solution but nothing will stop the burn quicker than removing the burning substance before it melts your skin.

    When hot glue lands on my finger, I quickly rub my finger with the glue on it against another finger really quickly, it seems to reduce the heat by a lot, for me anyway.

    I gave myself a wicked cut with a knife when i made an octo-shot for a friend. Was weird how i did it to, was the clumsiest thing i'd ever done.

    Someone noticed the bandage on my finger when i attended my first war and asked me about it, when i explained how i did it, i was looked at like i was an idiot.

    Not that i let things like that bother me, just saying is all...
