    Excellent! I remember the very first First Aid course I took...probably in the mid-late 60's during lifeguard training. They taught the primary purpose for First Aid is to save YOURSELF. Knowing how to stop bleeding on your own person was taught first. You just showed the value of that.

    blood was everywhere, I twisted the cuff of my shirt over it first, jammed the twist against the tree then went for the pouch on my belt, slapped a large dressing on it to slow things down,whizzed down then got a compression dressing on over the lot. I consider long sleeves a form of PPE too

    A sharp Silky is no joke! Knock on wood I have been lucky enough not to get a bad cut so far. Last cut that got me on my hand was while cutting a piece of deadwood as well. It was a Live Oak and I was pushing myself after only a few hours of sleep the night before. After that I called it an earlier day. Hope you heel well Bermy!

    Silkys are very dangerous, masquerading as safe.

    Seen some nasty wounds on the forums.

    Good you didn’t hit any major veins or ligaments.
    I?m condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    I've never seen Silky touting their saws as being "safe."

    Got a link?

    Ouch.

    It happens Fiona. Heal quick. Personally I wouldn't bother with the cutproof sleeves. They are cumbersome and very hot. Just don't put yourself in the same situation again.

    When ever I have clipped my self bad with a silky, I always try and work out how it happened. Then later on I might find myself in a similar position and think I ... oh yeah, that's how I got myself last time... and then try and reposition.

    Accidents can happen as that is the nature of the term.

    No, just common sense, one would think that a static saw would be less dangerous than a motorized one, but, for many reasons they can be as, or more dangerous.
