Glad you made it out ok. I hope the machine was winding down, or at least turned off when you made contact. Having my finger off of the trigger was the only thing that saved my palm when I dropped a still very spinning bit into it a few years ago. I've switched every router I can to a trigger operated one since. I wish they had motor breaks.
That's pretty cool. I assume my friend didn't do that because we installed 15 and I need like.. 3. However, I do have over 200' of 12/3 and 100' of 12/2 left. I know enough to splice in if I need to. Though I'd probably still have someone watch over me. One of my projects will soon be stapling around to make sure everything is secure. Think I'll wait until it's under 90 though... Well, I thought I could probably make it through the winter and still do stuff without electricity, but I couldn't without insulation and walls. So that was the priority. Meanwhile, I knew that there was ZERO chance I could pay for this project, due to previous tool spending shenanigans. So when my friend came, and the money suddenly appeared as if by magic from elsewhere. Suddenly it turned to "Crap why did I start the drywall!" I did ask my friend how hard it would be to fish the walls and he said it would be no problem. Turns out that is because when he puts up insulation and drywall he staples the insulation to the inside of the stud, I did it to the outside. So there was no nice groove for him to slide the wire down like he anticipated. Long story short, no prep and no brain on my part.
