I can go that one considerably better. I was soldering pennys to screws to make tuning capacitors for a coaxial filter. Being a college kid I wasn't wearing socks. I was, however, wearing ankle-height boots. I tinned up a penny and then dropped it in my boot. I got the boot off very, very, very quickly, but not quickly enough. I had to pry the penny off with a screwdriver.I was drilling a hole in a metal table, wearing sandles. A blue chip fell under the strap. I did the owie dance all over the shop, trying to get it out.
Make a simple spark eroder it works extremely well as I can attest to being such a ham fisted worker.Breaking off a drill as the final operation on a part that I just spent 5 hours milling. I thought drilling would be the easy part. But it grabbed and broke before I could react. I'm thinking of paying to have it EDMed out.
So far I've picked them up 3x. I don't know how long it will take me to figure out my ATGW gloves aren't my MMA gloves.if I had a dollar for every person that grabbed something aluminum that I just got done welding....they learn quick
I've mastered it. & don't want to ever do it again.If you ever master that one, explain it in a sticky thread....I am sure we could all use it.
Now that's bad day!So far I've picked them up 3x. I don't know how long it will take me to figure out my ATGW gloves aren't my MMA gloves.

I used to power my gate from my fencer by hooking a wire from the fence to a wire I had wrapped around the gate. It was a heavy fog on that morning & I had the wires unhooked hanging. I bent over & the top of my head touched that wire. I don't know where I went but it was really dark there & it seemed an eternity before I came back. I really thought I'd died.
I don't have any stories from fast spinning blades. Probably because I go into high altar around them. I usually don't use guards or anti kickbacks because I found them to get in the way & cause safety problems themselves. So I'm paying really close attention to my body & where it is along with anyone else around. I have some very dangerous tools that have to be well under control all the time that they are powered.
I did have a day that I really shouldn't have been anywhere but bed. I was riding my bike home from work early morning & hit a deer. I hit it square on then it came down the side of my bike hitting my leg & bouncing my leg off the engine block. Nothing I could have done about that but the stupid part of this story is when I got home I started running my Sawmill & as I was loading a log I forgot to chulk the others. I have my mill at the bottom of a hill & roll the logs to it by hand down the hill. As I was putting one on the mill my wife started yelling "honny". No idea why she doesn't ever speak what the danger is but this time she didn't have to because I already knew what that sound was so I started running for the nearest escape without wasting any time to turn around & look where they was at. I had some waste piled up at the end of the mill & jumped to clear it. I almost made it. The log caught my ankle while I was in the air. I got lucky & nothing got broken that day even though I felt like both times that same leg got broken. The only damage was a bent break control & a bent loading ramp. The ramp works fine as is & I actually like the position on the brake control on my bike better now. My leg has even quit hurting.
I have a bad habit of doing the same thing. It's instinctual for me to try and catch something with my feet. Has almost gotten me in trouble many times.Had a great uncle who worked for the RR up in Wash State.....back when they carried the rail irons by man-power. Got a section of rail dropped on his safety toes.....cut the toes off clean as it mashed the steel cap flat.
My brother wears some sneakers with safety toes....but they aren't steel, but some composite. Very light and comfy he says. Of course, no tests yet for him. I'll stay with my steel toes and still try to get out of the way. I have a very bad habit though. Working QC for a while, I developed this habit of catching things (instruments, delicate parts, etc) with my feet. Hard to NOT stick them in the way sometimes.
I do that to. It has occasionally resulted in a small object that probably would survived a collision with the floor just fine zinging across the shop and ending up in the bottom of a box of scrap.I have the same habit if catching things with my feet. Fortunately for me it had never caused any serious injuries, but it has saved many a cell phone and even the occasional glass.
