Hello World

The finger problem continues I have been told all be trained professionals

  • 1 week in a splint
  • 3 weeks in a splint
  • 6 weeks in a splint

And if does not work as there is no guarentee then they don’t know what the next stage is, great.

Talking to a London Hand clinic the splint for 6-8 weeks was the advice, forgot to ask about what if it dont work, will go there if I need to.

On to the splint, as I mentioned neither of the ones I had so far were the best in my eyes. Managed to find one on tinternet that used thermoplastic but could not find then for sale, so off to e-bay I went:hmsplint4.JPG

Polymorph theromplastic, reuseable plastic £3 delivered for 100g bag, weird stuff.
Water in a cup in the microwave, 2 mins, drop some thermoplastic granuals in, wait for them to go clear , work like putty, wine bottle rolling pin roll flat, scissors cut to shape, mould, run it under cold water, Done:


not the pretiest thing but much better that its rivals, this stuff is great, now what else can I make ?

then I decided to turn it over easy hot water warm it up and mould:hmsplint6.JPG

and now I need to shut this puter and chat to this guy:
