I was sledgehammering the rear drums off of Skeet's car in the middle of the rear disc brake swap, and a section of the drum chipped off and bounced off of my forehead. Could have bounced into my eyes if conditions were different. Yes, I was wearing my SGs too. Got one pair, the "good" pair for most stuff, and the old beaten up pair in the toybox, i mean the toolbox, for an extra or the JY or whatever.

Prescription eye drops for a week fixed me last time, but next time it might be a big piece of metal that costs me my eye. Be careful people!!

one time I was cutting some metal with my dremel and a small cuttoff disk. At about 15,000 to 20,000rpm, and the disc broke. Pieces of cuttof disc went everywhere, and i could feel 2 pieces bounce off my safety glasses. Luckily I was wearing them. if not, i would have had 10,000rpm chunks of heavy duty cuttoff disc reaking havoc on my retna.
So yeah. Keep a spare, and get the GOOD kind.

I hit a chisel with a hammer once, a piece of it went so far into the joint of my index finger that you couldn't see it. It was fun letting the doctor dig that one out of the cartilage.

on another note, while putting the skid plate back on the front of the Skeetmobile, i dropped one of the bolts right on my SGs, and also had a small chunk of grime somehow make it past them and land right next to my tear duct. Qtip time!!

tom, sorry about the over spray at Jim's! at least you get your daily iron requirements for the past 20 years!
basically, my point is:
dont let no havin' of safety goggles ruin your credit over no damn hospital bill!
