Just wanted to let you guys know that hotbarrel, one of our key forum members here, had a mishap at work last night, getting badly burned on the hand with some hot oil. It looks as though he has suffered 3rd degree burns on his right hand, and the latest word I got was he'd be undergoing surgery sometime today to remove the burned skin on the back of his hand. hopefully eveything goes well for him, and maybe offer a prayer to help speed his recovery. He might be pissed at me for telling, but I thought you guys would be concerned , as I am.
I'll update everyone as I get more info.

thanks for letting us know SKSH. It can never hurt to have a few more people pray for him. I sure hope it all goes well with the surgery. I recently lost my insurance, and can only imagine what this would be like without it. But, it sounds like workman's comp should take care of this.

I know what 2nd and 3rd degree chemical burns feel like, so he has my sympathy. Please keep us updated.

?hotbarrel? I hope you can type with the other hand and that you?ll stay in touch with your friends here at gunco. Never met you but hope you all the best. Been there, done that. I?ve worked twenty-seven years in injection molding so I?ve had more than my share of burns and other crap. Keep it clean and dry and do what the Doc?s say, I hope your back soon.

Hotbarrel has been one of the people that have been most encouraging to me personally. He made the rivet smoocher and sent it to me in a flash! He has been, and I hope that he will continue to be a great contributer to this site and to our collective base of knowledge and experiance!

I pray that he recovers quickly and completely. I also pray for the welfare of his family, that they will be alright during this difficult time.

Get well soon hotbarrel! This place will not be the same without you! Besides that, who is going to play with the new lathe at home?

All the best!

Hello
Bradd wants me to report to the men here that had wanted metal pots he was makeing. the pots are started but he will not be able to weld for some time, he has not cashed any checks yet because they are not finished. he said he will finish them soon as he can, but the welder will make the hand worse. he is very conserned about you that have paid and the delay, so if you want the check back I will put them in the mail, hpefully you can wate for him.. As for his burn, it is very bad. Teusday the doctors removed all the skin from the right hand, the plastic surgin is going to look this week and decide about moveing skin or putting on something synthetic.
Again he is very upset about not getting the work out on time , please understand.
thenk you AQB

AQB,

I take it you are Hotbarrel's significant other? Anyway, if you all need something let us know. I don't know what we can do yet, but we might be able to do something here because we all respect Hotbarrel for his advice and knowledge as well as being a standup guy.

I think I speak for everyone here.

Tell Bradd not to worry about the pots. His health is more important than anything else. When he gets well, he can finish them. Go ahead and cash my check, it sounds like he is going to be missing some work so you may need it. ak'sr4me
