Though this experience surely could have been worse, the visual, has brought a smile to my morning.... .Lookin' great!
Oh yeah, the PWOD! I agree with that and don't often use them anymore.
While I do admit to using a larger diameter PWOD than the grinder calls for, they are scary nonetheless!
I had one snag on a corner and it took the grinder from my hands.
Being looked on the on position, it hit the bench and then swung around on the power cord right at me.
My Jedi reflexes allowed my to duck, avoiding a head strike, but it then proceeded to wind up in my shirt, still locked in the on position!
I will not forget the humming of that stuck motor as my shirt was slowly eaten while the wheel tore at my chest.
Ripped the plug from the outlet, and took a deep breath before checking the damage... not too bad, looked like road rash.
Anyhow, I don't use the trigger lock with the PWOD, and hold on like my life depends on it now!
Full face masks... good idea!
