We get safety emails at our job from time to time and got these pics. Did'nt happen at our place but thought I'd share. Lucky for him he was wearing the mask and not just safety glasses.

"Hey, relax, buddy, no need to lose your head!! Fine, I'll change the wheel!"

Yea, that was bad.

That guy was SO lucky, and good on him for doing it RIGHT!

Last week I was cutting some flat stock with an angle grinder and a thin (yes Harbor Freight) blade. Rather than place the metal in the vice, I was holding it with my left hand on the workbench. (y'all know where this is going...)

The blade chunked and the grinder shot towards my... {bathing suit area} I managed to push down and leap back at the same time and it hit my inner thigh.

<Look down> See big hole in my jeans.

SH!T !!

<Look through hole> See blood

DAMN IT!

Fortunately the blade hit more flush than on end and it skinned rather than sliced my leg. Now I have a 3/4 circle scab that looks like a shark bite. heh heh

It could'a been alot worse, seeing those pic's reinforces that.


Ride'on,

~C!~

a cutting wheel is one of the most dangerous tools to use. ive *seen* a cutoff wheel shatter and stick in someones cheek. ive seen the aftermath of a cutoff wheel coming apart leave a 4 inch gash 1/2 inch deep down someones forearm.

the slightest side load and they come apart, and when the pieces hit its just like sticking you hand in the wheel while tis spinning. i wont use one without a full face mask and a new wheel that i put on there myself.

You know.,..

(knocking on wood!)

I've never had a 4.5" wheel come apart like that, although I'm careful, I always have at least my safety glasses, face shield if I'm getting in close, upside down, or a prolonged period (basically if there is any chance I'll get some spray back, if I'm cutting off one little bolt I just rock the glasses).

I do however always wear my face shield and stand out of line of the big 10" wheel on my chop saw. Especially with the shitty HF wheels I currently have (they're totally not straight and flat!).

Hey, thanks for the post!

Now I need to find a welding mask,

Decent is going a little to far!!! The only thing that ever lasted that I bought there was a magnetic parts tray! All my Snap-On shit is still perfect, and most was bought in 1984
:doh:

harbor freight tools suck ass and everyone knows it. BUT they serve thier purpose and i got there regularly. in the middle of a job if you really need a tool to get it done, and only need it that one time...... thats the place to go. sure it will probably break at some point in the job but its better than buying the good one and never needing it again! i call it the disposable tool store, because iver never bought anything there that lasted through more than 2 or 3 uses at the most.

Thats what pisses me off about HF, nothing worse then depending on a tool and have if take a shi* in the middle of a job. I will say, I bought an angle die grinder that just won't die from HF 4 years ago and it must have 400 hours of use.

but yeah, ive got a dremel from HF that i paid $4 on sale and its been running great for 6 years now lol. sometimes you get lucky, but i wouldnt depend on anything from there lasting very long.
