Half way through stitching. Apparently they can come out in a week!!




Right hand got glued, still cracks open a little and oozes.

You're going to have a nice scar there.

That's grim and has put mine to shame. What actually happened? Did the disc catch, shatter and embed itself into your hands?

Holy pineapple Ed, how the hell did you manage that?!
Hope you have a speedy recovery, maybe consider a hand tools only policy?

Lol should have used the plasma! 😂

I often hold the metal on the table and use the grinder in the other hand, then if it catches it throughs the mental away from me.
This time I clamped some metal down to the table and then the disc stuck and fired the grinder back into me, so it run up my finger with a cutting disc! I got the urge I was dropping it which is why I went to grab it and the other hand got it! So I finally dropped the thing at which point the disc shattered and half of it smacked me in the forehead! So I have a graze on the head too! 😣
Ears and eyes protected but hands not!

Maybe I'll look at building a cnc router so I don't have to hold the thing 😊
Stitches supposed to come out next week. Had it redressed today and apparently it's doing well.

My brothers employee managed to nearly kill himself when a 9" grinding disc let go

Although it doesn't mention his right hand only held on by skin

I just brought a 9 in angle grinder and had a mate who uses such things on a daily basis give me a run down on tool safety, complete with graphic discriptions of what happened, one guy had it kick back and ended up with the disc embedded in his forehead: dead

Tools not toys for boys, fully enclosed googles heavy leather gloves and grade 5+ ear muffs and if the floors wet NO power tools to be used and if you get a belt from some of the E-lec-tri-city stuff go immediately to doctor or hospital
Had an apprentice who copped a belt everyone had a laugh he was fine, went to footy training that night then drinking as any very fit 18 year old would next day at smoko he dropped down dead. Electric shock can kill the cells in your heart muscle, you need to get it checked with an MRI if you get a belt
Sorry to be a kill joy, fingers and toes don't grow back and DEATH CAN BE FATAL

cruiza that's direct and to the point,,
never remove the guard and always use that annoying handel,
a 12 gauge shot gun is safer than a 9 inch grinder,,
be safe lads,

Any news on this? Looking at picking up a 1.8t myself once I've addressed the rust on my shed. Heaps of room up front for decent size intercooler and radiator!
