    This should be plastered to the main page of this site as a cautionary tale for DIYers.

    Exactly, and that's the ultimate price you pay for messing around with equipment you don't understand. Can't afford a repairman? Then use the sink until you can. Heat isn't working? Bundle up. A/C not working? Get a box fan.

    Check out the ceramic/wood wedding bands on Amazon. My wife bought me one a few years ago for $20. I do a lot of heavy industrial/chiller work. Hasn't come close to breaking. My boss bought one last month for $10 after his wife saw mine, and liked it.

    unfortunately it's not just DIYers. some very worthy and competent techs also take the hit...

    I haven't worn any rings, bracelets, or watches in quite a while. I used to wear a watch, a low profile Timex, and ended up getting it hung up while working on my truck. I have enough scars and crooked fingers. Much less the chance of actually offing myself.
    Nemo me impune lacessit.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    Unfortunately most of us are diyers one way or another. Not to many of us going to call somebody to put a dishwasher in yet I bet few of us are trained to do so. This could of happened to any one of us. Trained or not. Just goes to show you the dangers of jewelry in our field. Fortunately I gained 5 lbs on my honeymoon 24 years ago and the wedding ring hasn't fit since.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!
