    Handicapped chopping

    I'm having a bit of a time figuring out how to chop veggies with a big wad of stuff wrapped around the middle finger of my guiding hand. I get cramps in my hand from trying to keep the cotton out of the carrots!

    Athletic tape for some compression and a finger cot.

    To keep bandages under control:
    Wear a glove.

    As far as technique, these times are GREAT for your technique. It's like running with weights or swimming with your arms tied together. It makes you better.

    Super Glue, duct tape, & finger cots.

    The problem is that a quarter inch swath of skin is gone and some meat as well, so the dressing is rather bulky. Surgical gloves won't fit over it, and utility gloves are bulky. I don't have a Slap Chop, unfortunately(?). My friend suggested a mandolin, butt where is the fun in that? I think I'll add some finger cots to my current Amazon order, with my track record I will be needing then at some point in the future as well!

    What about a finger stall made of rubber or latex, that's what I use when I got injuries on the fingers. I like them better than surgical gloves, no water running in at the wrist and you compromise your tactile sense only on the respective finger instaed of the entire hand.

    EDIT:
    Sorry, I didn't know that finger cot and finger stall are the same.
