I've been the 10" circular saw maven of the house since this project began. It's my saw, and I use it about 90% of the time.
But it's an old saw. A Makita from 1995ish, I believe. And heavy. I used to use the saw all the time and never had any problems before, but now as I cut into my 400th or so 2x4, my right elbow is just plain sore.
Hubby tells me it's tennis elbow.
Yesterday, I set the saw on top of our makeshift OSB table as we finished furring out the second floor 'office' (yeah, one more room done!) and bumped into a 2x4 that knocked the saw off of the table. In a split second, I quickly reached out and grabbed the saw mid air 2' from the ground, saving the saw from certain death, and most definitely totally wrenching my elbow in rather excruciating pain.
I'm researching how to crush up ibuprofen in a sterile solution so I can IV the concoction straight into the elbow. They seem to be all out of morphine at the Krogers Rx.
Moral of the story: learn to share your toys more with your spouse.
