    Ditto the Epsom salts, salt water, HP and then - neosporin(sp?) seems to work wonders. Don't take finger infections lightly- lots of important, small, moving 'stuff' in them.

      Oh god yes. Finish cuts on steel and the little invisible daggers of festering magnetically attracted pain that it makes are one of the reasons I don't get too excited about milling steel. My magnetic measurement tools all seem to be purpose built to deliver those into my hands.

        Same result when you grind weld beads with a carbide bur -- millions of tiny little needles.

          You also get needles with 7075 aluminum since it is harder than mild steel.

            I would be afraid to put Nersportap on a tap to thread with------ it might make the hole heal up and break the tap. Brings to mind the next OBVIOUS use--------.
