No. Not bad enough. There is nothing they can do for it that I can't do at home. It'll heal. I'm just mad at my carelessness.

My finger is feeling pretty good. Only time it hurts is when I bump it.

Couldn't get the glass off of the mold so I cut it in half and pulled it that way. The outline fits great now for gluing the 2 half's back together and trimming sanding and filling the glass. I had to destroy the mold to get the glass off. that sucks cause I wanted to use it for a sanding buck. Wonder how that spray insulation foam would work for that. I guess I'll find out. Yes I just thought of it when I was typing.

What is the plan to attach it, some small screws around the perimeter?

Yes. I need some small flat head single blade screws. All I can find is Philips.

The shield is real flimsy. Can't sand the outside like I planned at first but realized when I pulled it off the mold that it was going to be a problem. I came up with filling the cavity with insulation foam. The least expandable kind. this will take a little while to set up. Does anyone think this will work. I don't know but think it might.
