Well saw Kert and some other post about about safety warnings and things happening to them. So I thought I would share my recent brushes with pain.... Will list them in order with some detail.. This list does not include the nurmerous cuts and burns I haven't gotten recently, just the more severe incidents. 1. About a month ago I hit a burnt u-joint with a hammer.. No safety glasses on.. A piece of hot melted something or other shot at my face. Luckily my eye reacted quick enough and the piece landed on my eyelids. The piece was hot enough that it actually stuck to them and I had to pull it off. Left a nice burn there for a few days as well as some swelling. 2. Small metal shaving stuck to my eyeball!! Again, not wearing safety glasses.. Was under my 90 cutting something with metal shears. Thought to myself, what could come off? Well as I was pulling the shears apart, a piece flew off and stuck to my eyeball. Almost dead center! No one was around so I rushed upstair to my bathroom and grabbed my tweezers. Couldn't get close enough to pull it off without my eye flinching. Ended up getting lucky and the last time my eye flinched, I bumped it with the tweezer and it came off. I am very lucky I didn't poke through my eyeball!! 3. Something I never thoguht of working in the garage is feet protection! Now this is a pretty stupid one.... Working on pulling apart a spare 10 bolt last night in the garage. Had the bearing nuts off and the outer bearing out. Couldn't get the caliper off so I had to cut it off. Once it was free I was standing at the end of the axle pulling the caliper off. As soon as the caliper got past the rotor, the rotor and bearing hub slid off and fell 3-4 feet onto my big toe. Let me tell you how bad that hurts!!! Was going to take a pic for you guys last night but never did. The front of my big toe and the side is black & blue. The second toe is a little B&B also. Under about 90% of my big toe nail is B&B.. It hurt for hours! And bled even thorugh the night!(slept with my bloddy sock on) So now when I go into the garage, I wear my safety glasses almost 24/7!!!! And when I get a chance, I am heading to Wal-Mart ot pick up some cheap steel toe'd hiking boats for the garage!!!!! Just a word of warning to all to be careful!!!!
