So here" a lesson in how NOT to remove those outside wheel weights. Get somebody to help you! When you take that last bolt out, it"s going DOWN to the axel, even if you DO have a hold on it!
It"s been about a week, so I can laugh about it now, but for awhile I just walked around in little circles talking about how dumb I was...slim

ahh that is about the worst kind of hurt there is! A guy doesn't realize how bad that hurts till he does it, take a small drill bit and drill through the nail. It relieves the pressure and the intense pain.

At least you still have all your toes! OK, so I was 3 at the time, so I wasn’t removing weights from the tractor, just tipped one over. But still something to talk about. Hope that gets better soon, I know what that feels like!

I agree with drilling the hole - small as possible - like a #60 bit. I have had to do this to myself several times, and all the pain is gone immediately (after finishing the drilling process)

Well, the act of drilling a hole in my nail might have worked, but my "cojones" were just not big enough!...Lol
I was NOT about to create any more pain...slim

Find someone with a steady hand to heat the bent out end of a paper clip red hot and it can burn through till the blood comes out. Don'task me how I know this.

BTDT with weights,including a smashed foot. I can't lift them any more so maybe I'm safe now.
