And workin on other cars I cut the end of my thumb under the nail straight to the bone where you can see the bone. hurts like a Bi*** and plus I'm left handed so........ I can still take screws out with the right but nah gonna let myself heel up:)

Hey, CA works great for small cuts on the fingers! Doctors use octyl-cyanoacrylic in the office. True. Crazy glue your cuts away and never get stitches again. :p

Ya my dad was into the automotive business for some 24 or more years. I'm not sure if you guys no a automotive shop called "Napa Auto Parts" but if you do he was a partial owner of it and they use super glue when workin on cars and they get a cut. works like a dream and as stated no more stitches:D

Super Glue or Ca glues sticks well to the skin because that's what it's original design was for.

It was invented for military triage to seal wounds that would otherwise need stiches or large sutures to close. I had to learn how to use it in the service for combat lifesaver courses.

It was and is much easier to pour CA on a wound and hold it together for three seconds than it is to stitch on skin a dozen times while being shot at and bombed.

A little history on the RCCA boards for ya.

I hate gluing my fingers to stuff. :( I know someone told me in a medical/health magazine, something for cuts was put crazy glue on them. :)

I for one have never tried this, I dont seem to get cuts all too often.
