    Its bugging me now this, when i was trad like most of you i developed a callous where the squeegee handle was on my thumb, on the knuckle near my nail.
    But since going wfp i have developed another callous further down from where i grip the lower part of the pole, but its freakishly big this callous!!! It doesn't hurt or cause any problems, it just looks weird and like i'm deformed.
    Reckon i might show it to the doctors.

    Left hand thumb

    Hahaha nice one cnc, dont work to hard on my account :D

    I dont think there is any fluid or owt it feels somewhere inbetween hard and soft, and moves around if i grip it, my hands are also covered in segs, reckon my skin hardens up real easy where it feels a high use area.

    C'mon jimmy get a pickie up so we can see :laugh:
