My broken foot

Post by joshloar on Fri Jun 13, 2008 1:40 am

Two weeks ago friday, I broke my foot at work. I work in a fab shop where we make custom machine bases and other large equipment up to 40 tons. My job is to take a set of blue prints and a stack of metal and assemble the jobs. I was using the ceiling crane to stand a two 2000lb steel plate on their sides. They were 136 x 18 x 3 inches. I had one stood up so it was 18 inches up. i was attempting to stand the next one up when it slide across the table and bumped the first piece. I thought i was far enough from it to be safe but when the plates hit they moved a good couple of feet. needless to say one caught my right foot.

These are the pictures of the steel toes from my shoes. They pretty much saved my foot. the one on the right is the one that caught the plate. Luckly i ended up with just one broken bone.




It was a pretty scary ordeal but so far it turned out ok.

Wow, that's amazing. Good thing you were wearing steel-toes. How long are you going to be in a cast?

OK man. Be careful on it, and don't mess it up anymore than it already is!
