Well grinder disk exploded....

Well working on my 4dr and I as I was cutting threw some metal and my brand new disk just exploded! I managed to move away fast enough so it didn't cause to much damnage. 12 stitches laster(6 inside and 6 on top).. so far got some muscle damage range of movement is slowed and it hurts like a son of a Bitch.

Ouch!

Brand of disc? Sure it doesn't matter all that much but if I can avoid buying a certain brand...

I dislike seeing anyone hurt. Especially on here. I hope there isn't any permanent damage.

I guess I'll stop using mine without the shield, and get some gloves. You'd think I'd learned my lesson; coming up on four years since my eye injury.

Phew.... You are very lucky with that cut location. Sure glad it wasn't worse. Hoping for a quick and full recovery.

As a Pipefitter I have seen similar injuries end up much worse off. The company I work for does not allow us to cut using grinders with 3/32" or Zip discs any longer due to a few accidents like this one.

Vision has been stable since it all healed up. Still some distortion in the central vision and sensitive to bright light, but it is sure better than being blind!

Wow I wasn't expecting all the love! Thanks guys I am doing a lot better lately it's been about 2 weeks since the injury happened and I'm getting some motor skills back more and more. There's not much pain from the cut more from the muscle damage.

Deev, yeah man this year blows bad. First the accident now I almost cut my hand off lmao.

The disk I used is what ever Home Depot sells with the red label. Used them plenty of times and never had a problem. I must have gotten a defective one. Sucks lol

Glad that your doing better. Also man what a hell of a year you have had. Totaled the Accord on a stationary post and a grinder disc slicing your forearm/wrist all up.

man, glad it wasn't worse.


Being left handed, I've always been tentative using angle grinders....a lot of times the shields don't rotate enough to properly be used left handed. Super sketchy especially cutting though some tough metal. And after having a small dremel cutting wheel shred on me recently, I can only imagine a larger grinding disc.

Jesus that's scary. I'm guessing it was one of the Diablo blades, which I believe are pretty good quality. I know their sawzall blades cut like butter, or Harbor Freight blades are just crap; probably both.

Is is possible the cause isn't necessarily a defect in the item, but rather how you were using it? E.g. were you cutting against the rotation of the wheel? I'll have to read up on this.

Usually with the skinny style disks I let them do the work is stead of adding pressure like you would With actual grinding. I'm almost positive it was a defective disk. I guess it's partly my fault too. I didn't really inspect the disk before opperation so that's my fault. Who knows probably could have prevented it.
