Ouch! Been there also. Hot metal filings on bare chest.
Well, why was I handling those 200+ lb logs last winter? But then, I did not plan on letting them fall. Did pinch a finger though. Yes, it hurt.
I lift nothing anymore if its not a split. I may roll it but that's it.
I'm still marginally young and stupid. Not over the hill (officially) until next year. I was lifting 16" dia x 20" long (100-120 lb.) splits onto the splitter tonight, because I can split faster horizontally.
That said, I'm smarter than it used to be. I noodled the four 30"+ rounds I was going to split, before lifting their quarters onto the splitter. A year ago, I'd have muscled 'em up onto the footplate, vertical style... which is so much harder than it sounds, with 400 lb. rounds.
Hill? What hill?
