I hate box cutters. Seems they like human flesh more than boxes. Hope you heal quickly.

I am always surprised to see mechanics wearing rings and bracelets.

Some of the most wasted money I have ever spent was for a blood sugar check kit. It has a lance, a meter, and an indicator strip. Since I strike blood at least once a day in the shop half of the kit is wasted money.

Bill, add WATCHES to that list. I had taken off all the other stuff........and stupid me let my watch touch the wrong spot on an alternator and I still have the "watch band scars" after 4 or 5 years. Lesson learned.....again!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

I started learning machine shop when I was 16 at a tech high school.
Watched a lot of graphic movies. I have never worn anything on my hands or wrist in over 40 years.
Although I did wear my wedding ring one day when I got married.
Loose clothing is another no no around rotating equipment!
I'm proud to say, I have some good scars, but I still have all my fingers!

Primitive Pete [youtube.com] is what they showed us in shop class.
I find myself wearing gloves, face shields, etc. more now than I did when I was young and stupid. Hopefully I'm still not stupid. I have a few scars. One's a tattoo I gave myself on my hand when I was driving out a kingpin with a drift with greasy hands.

Thanks Kevin!
I learned a lot from that youtube video.
Never knew a pair of pliers could slip and round off a hex nut!

But seriously, here is a very graphic video I found on youtube.
WARNING! It is graphic!!!

1.0 Wearing gloves while using a bench grinder is sketchy. Also make sure sure the grinder rest has only a minimal gap from the wheel.
2.0 Consider wearing safety glasses with your face shield when using your cutoff wheel or bench grinder..especially if you buy your consumables from H.F.
3.0 If you are spraying epoxy or urethane paint consider buying a full face fresh air respirator. If you don't want corona virus in your lungs the you don't want "isocynates" from the activator in your lungs. What is the price of piece of mind for your lungs or that trip to E.R....later in life
4.0 Consider spring loaded box cutters
5.0 Ear plugs and dust mask when grinding
Stay safe everybody!!
