    Is what I got tonight while trying to remove U-bolt nuts with a 1/2" impact wrench, 120PSI air, and a standard universal Chinese-made swivel.... /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Things were going well until the 3rd nut. The universal exploded, with the impact gun/broken swivel traveling across my hand, leaving the cross pin stuck in it, and grinding it's way up my arm before I could let go /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    My buddy was whiter than I was, but we had a good laugh after the bleeding stopped. (Well, HE was laughing) /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    In case anybody else was considering doing the same.....BAD IDEA! I knew better, but was rushing to get done....

    I'm getting some nice, new, impact rated tools first thing tomorrow.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'll spare you Shaggy, but needless to say, needle nose pliers were not a proper surgical tool. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
