Easily done, especially after a long break away from the workshop. Glad it wasn't a lot more serious even though its bad enough...
I was in a shop that had big signs printed up "Do not use hands to pull stringers"
and had illustrations of using a hook.
Glad you survived to fight another day….Just to remind myself what an Ar$e I can be I am going to put one up above the lathe because someone has already pointed out I am likely to do this again. Something like:
DONT DO IT!
In big red letters.
