    Too reduce welds on alum, if needed.

    That, my friends is an extremities remover. From appearances, a very efficient one as well.

    That looks like a ring got caught on something.

    Wedding ring. A guy I worked with was hanging from a thin piece of metal and when he let go the same injury happened to him.

    For that reason, welding and when I was diving in the water I haven't worn my ring in over 25 years.

    Re: Stupid kills

    I worked with a guy that wore his wedding ring all the time. He or his wife had some hangup about the ring staying on until death. He was drilling holes on a drill and wore very thin, rubbery gloves. The company provided those or the cheap, Harbor Freight shop gloves they bought by the bundle (gross). A curly piece hit his glove and caught the edge of his ring. This pulled his finger into the chuck and drill bit. Ripped his joint pretty bad. He was off work about a month with some type of splint after having a few stitches. After a few months he had his ring resized and wore it on his middle finger. No fooling.

    I had a similar wood saw attachment for getting into tight corners. It's handy as hell in reno jobs, but also lethal. You should tell them why it's all tack welded together... having things unthread when you spin it backwards (I use it in a hand drill) is particularly lethal.

    DOC Welder;

    Never wanted one. I've been utterly faithful to one woman 40 years now. That sort of injury is my excuse for not having a ring. Jewelry is not my thing. I prefer seeing it on women.

    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    There is a carbide 4-1/2" cutter for right angle grinders. It looks great. It's designed for cutting aluminum without the problems you can get with a grinder. It cuts with the curved face. I inquired about one. They are well over a thousand dollars.

    Normally I don't like to have the guard on my 4.5" grinder but if I was going to be using one of these on it I'd definetly take the time to re-install it.

    My thoughts exactly but somehow they work and they work real well. I think a lot of these things aren't nearly as dangerous as they appear to be as long as you're careful.

    In general I don't have much use for any petty government bureaucrat. Especially ones that know next to nothing about my job but yet feel they some how have a right to tell me how to go about doing it.

    PS: F*ck MSHA too!
