WHOA ! Now THAT is scary, Mark !
Makes a guy review all his shop habits, huh folks. They make Nitril gloves for a reason. Let's all make sure we use 'em.

REAL glad you're still with us, Mark. Praying there aren't any long term side effects to ya, Brother.

I had cut the top of my hand while working on a common rail cummins, As you all know common rail Diesels are very high pressure, Up to 32,000 psi. Another tech fired the engine and one of the high pressure lines was loose, It hit my hand just by luck right on the cut raised the skin. I went and washed my hands not knowing it had sprayed up the cut and under my skin getting in my blood stream, I started to get sicker and sicker untill i went to the emergency room, When they took blood from me checking for the flu my T-cell's count was out the roof, then they looked at my hand and 2 hours later i was in flight. So please be careful with this stuff i have worked in it for 32 years now and this is the first for me. Again thanks to all of you.

A guy I use to work with injected grease in his hand from a grease gun pretty similar to this. He lost a part of his hand and was sick for a while. Almost died from it.
