    A coworker use to always say "the clutch can be you friend". I don't think you'll find one on a corded model.

    Yes. The side handle is what broke my finger.

    Started my therapy today. Its real nice when they bend stuff as far as they can until it hurts. Geez. I'm glad to be moving forward though. One step closer to recovery

    The tendons and bone grew together when the bone healed. They went in and cut the tendons loose. It still doesn't feel right though.
