Okay, so I was tapping the pistons out of the 350 I just bought, right. Well, needless to say, missing the tool and hitting your thumb with a hammer is not a good idea. The hammer must have caught just right, because it just sort of squished and peeled away the skin and a good chunk of the fat underneath. 7 stitches and an hour and a half later I finished the teardown.

A true gearhead would have finished the teardown first. Then got the stitches. Maybe.

j/k...

That sounds pretty nasty. Glad you're all patched up.
