    Last time I caught myself with a grinder, I didn't even feel it. A couple of minutes later, the large amount of blood on the garage floor told me something must be wrong.

    Bench grinders are the worst kind.

    I've taken my knuckles into them before at one job I had back in high school. Caught the corner of the stone with my thumb once and it showed the bone. I still have a "spot" (scar) from it. Not real pretty.

    Funny thing once you get nicked, you just see a white spot on your digit. Wait a few minutes and it starts bleeding.

    Then theres all the knife cuts I have on my hands, fingers, etc. I won't go into details on those but I AM NOT AN EMO CUTTER either.

    Last time I did that it cut deep into my knuckle, but didn't bleed at all. Angle grinder must have cauterized it.

    Yep! Got my front tooth knocked out by one when I was 14. That was one bloody mess. Another kid shoved me from behind trying to be funny. Lost control of the piece of steel and it shot up went though my bottom lip and knocked my upper left tooth out. I had to have emergency surgery on that one. I have nothing but respect mixed with fear for grinders and wont use one with someone standing behind me to this day.

    They may be cheap, but that price goes out the window when the grinder actually grabs on to the glove and pulls your hand in it....if I can get a picture up.....

    fun with grinders and belt sanders

    I was grinding down some parting flash from an aluminum casting while working at the foundry, using a 30 grit sanding belt on a big stationary grinder..

    I'm leaning into this casting ( dodge V10 cylider head, still full of core sand) 'cause it's a POS, and a piece of flash cuts the belt, which then whips around full speed and takes my face shield off, sending it across the shop. didn't leave a mark though..

    I've also driven my knuckle into the belt with a lot of body weight behind it.. right through the glove.

    Best was when I was roughing a viper intake.. a piece of flash bounced off my chest, hit the inside of my face shield, and went under my safety glasses, and lodged itself in my eye.. that was fun getting that drilled out..

    Tom

    no grinding zone!...

    Yeah--I wouldn't use the GRINDER on it either!...:p: ..those warts will fade away eventually...:wink1:

    I've had a few BAD experiences with grinders,both bench grinders and hand held ones..ground my skin down to the bone a few times,got numerous burns,etc..but mostly the damage I hated worst was when the grinding wheel shattered,and peices managed to go UNDER my glasses,and bounce off them,and lodge in my eyeball!..I had to have pieces drilled out of my eyes more than a few times..metal isn't quite as bad as a grinding stone to get out of your eye--at least steel is magnetic,and a magnet will get most of it out easily...brass dust from grinding brazed panels sucks though--its not magnetic,and feels like ground glass in your eyes..the flux from brazing rods hurts too..:(

    I once had a U-joint in a 100 ton press shatter as I was pressing it out,and peices not only went in my eyes,they also burrowed deep into my flesh near my belly button..didn't notice it right away,as my eye was my main concern--next day my naval area got all swelled up,and had bled while I was sleeping!..had to have a doctor use a scalpel to dig them out!..:eek1:

    I also had a 9" grinder cut my shoe and foot,when some prankster at school decided locking the trigger in the "ON" position would be a cool joke!--I plugged it in,and it did a few doughnuts on the floor,and went right over my sneaker,and wound itself tight around my foot when it snagged the shoe laces...:mad: ..but I managed to unplug it before any serious damage was done to my foot..I used the grinder to do some serious damage to the goon that thought it was funny too!..;)
