What about actual cut fingers? Now that i've lost the tip of my one finger, I've been
trying some new taping procedures! Here's what works best:
Vaseline or Vitamin E (preferably) covering the area of pain
White hockey tape covering injured area from top to bottom
Finger ripped off of surgical glove and pulled over finger (ever do anything like this?)
Tape over surgical glove, proceeding to tape around hand numerous times
It's necessary to wrap around your hand, because the tape will _always_ come off if you
Also, i sometimes stick a big wad of kleenex in their, but it gets soaked and disgusting
regardless of fingered gloves..

When do i hook in?
I don;t hook in until i'm planing (sometimes quite a few feet!)...
Should i wait until planing, then hook in, and then attempt to get in the foots?
Or do you guys hook in immediately, and start in the straps?
