Arrgh! That's the worst.Hot sparks in my EAR.
Doh! Wait, that's the worst.Hot spark made it behind my safety glasses into my EYE.
Good suggestion. I’m going to HF tonight and will pick a pair up!Arrgh! That's the worst.

I hope you're okay. I've had metal removed from my eye three times now. You feel really stupid when the Urgent Care doctor remembers you from the last time she had to remove metal from your eye.
Safety glasses are minimal protection. I wear these when I'm cutting and grinding now. My co-pay's pretty low, but these are even cheaper.
Pretty sure I related the boring story about getting metal in my eye while cleaning the shop up forever ago. Also blew in behind the safety glasses. I was sweeping up and my big fan had vibrated a grille screw loose and some of the shrapnel got me. Yeah, super bright light shining in your eye while they keep telling you "don't move" and picking at your eyeball with a needle, then polishing the rust off your cornea with a dremel-like tool. Big fun. But yeah, this time I'm pretty sure I'm OK, not feeling anything in the eye this time. Got a couple tiny burn spots literally right under my lower eyelid.I hope you're okay.

Won't keep the sparks out of the ears though. I've got to come up with some position I can get in to get that job done.. I thought a bit about venturing out there today, but my arm is still burning (I know, I know, wahh) where the initial shower of sparks hit it, up close. Plus I'm hungover from excellent, poisonously strong margaritas.Good suggestion. I’m going to HF tonight and will pick a pair up!
It was my decision to celebrate the wife's birthday a couple nights in a row.. we had family/friends that had schedule stuff where they couldn't all make it on the same night. No worries! I'm good for going out twice in a row..Haha,you got one of those too. Mine used to say "But it's my Birthday month"
Ol’ long-hair-don’t-care. I’m bald and shave what’s left so I’ve always got a hat or bandanna on, but try to remember ear muffs when I’m cutting. Cleaning metal dust and bits of abrasive disc out of your ears at the end of the day isnt any fun.My hair covers my ears, at least there is some protection.
Ouch!! I was taught (more like ‘here’s the switch, don’t touch the spinning part’) to use a grinder as an apprentice welders/pipe fitters helper. Burned a hole in my shirt and proceeded to fill my belly button with sch40 stainless dust and abrasive disc particles. That was a long day…First I was showering my arm with hot sparks, so I changed position. Showering my belly with hot sparks. Tugged shirt down, changed position. Hot sparks in my EAR. Changed position. Hot spark made it behind my safety glasses into my EYE. FCK IT I'm done..
