    when sharpening the tungsten on a tig welder, make sure to stay somewhat to the side of the grinder and have a goood hold of it. Other wise you might end up with 4 inches of tig electrode in your leg and have to get sent to the hospital. Kinda cool to see it happen but i dont think the kid enjoyed it.

    Good God, that sounds painful. Sharpening tungsten ain't that hard.

    A guy where I used to work got his glove caught on a drill bit in a running drill press. It wrapped his arm around it and pulled him into the machine until someone turned it off.
