All good only lost 2 nails which are growing back very pleased with how it's recovered. There is a little tingling still in the scar area. I'm happy with how it turned out. The only machine I've actually felt nervous about using is the chopsaw when I had the head bevelled over and wondering where the blade is going to enter the wood. I feel much safer with the erika and the kss
I wanted to post that I zipped a tip off about 20 odd years ago, you can see the very faint lighter scar line in photo. Everything above it was in a pile of sawdust under table saw (minus width of blade).
I mention this because the doctor wanted to reshape the bone and fold the skin over too, and as I'm sitting there with the fresh tip in a cup of saline listening to him, the older nurses behind him are shaking their heads back and forth ("no."). The other option was to sew the useless tip back on as a 'biological shield' that would turn black and fall off in a week or so. (wtf!).
I asked for a moment to think about it. I was in an emergency room so he went to other tasks. I sidebar'ed with one of the nurses and she told me that since some of the nail bed was intact there was a good chance much of the tip will grow back. But if I let the doctor pad his bill that chance would be lost.
Took about 3 to 5 years but a considerable amount did grow back. I also had a tingling sensation that stayed with me and was told to foster it by digging my thumb nail into the finger pad to stimulate it even more right on that nerve.
Every case is going to be different and if you are at a hand specialist you obviously want to defer to them, but it pays to ask questions.

..and while we're at it: let it bleed! The best and most physiological way to cleanse the wound ( as long as it's not pulsating to the roof) A grown man/woman can easily lose half a liter of blood without more than experiencing a little dizzyness..

Mine they basically trimmed the bone pulled the skin over as seal the nail bed got lifted off then glued back on. Then let the body heal itself. To look at it now you would never know I do get a very slight tingle and when the nail gets long it curls over but it needs cut then anyway. I was told the less messing about the better the recovery
It’s a hell of a lesson to learn and the disbelief and shock at the ‘moment’ , to say the least, is unique.
I was rushing & taking chances for a crap client, under stress, for an unimportant job. In my case, the lesson I took away from it wasn’t just safety but also a new found total lack of care or respect for anyones deadlines. That and the lesson of what happens when you don’t put yourself first. I’m fast as it is and build momentum when working but that only works form being in a zone/flow with the support of reliable methods. I’m very aware now of anything that takes me off my game and I accept that I have to stop to asses.
all: Thanks to all for supporting me. I want to learn or know. That's why I have come in here.

bengt: Oh please the ks60 is better in every way. 60 degree miter in both directions. Bevels past 45(essential in a saw that must cut on the flat) Bigger blade more capacity. The Metabo hpt has 57 degree miter max and 45 bevel max.

alvychippy: It's the board hosts, that are having an idea, of somebody perhaps paying over the odds to acquire the board to administer it.... Obviously hopes are set high, Mafell isn't interested, so it carries on
