I was reprofiling a slew of good old vintage carbon, and right when i was about to finish up with an American made suji/slicer, I had the belt blow on me, whip around and whack my work station, narrowly missing my hand!
Damn that was close!

Glad you didn't have to change your name to "Righty". Or "Stumpy".

Hahaha. I guess I could have kept the Lefty handle and just become one of those ironically named people. Like a 350lb "Tiny", or Chihuahua named Goliath.

It will happen again, dont worry its not that bad. I once took a 36 grit blaze belt at full speed on my kmg over the top of my head. Scares more than it hurts.

Seriously, though, I've known a couple of people who lost sight in an eye who should have been wearing eye protection, so it's a hot button with me.

I used to have a pet pig named "Tiny" 485 lb drunk York/Hamp cross. Used to get into the beer supply, get drunk and chase people around. He thought he was a cop (Tiny was black and white) chasing people into his pen and then closing the door on them and collapsing in front of it so they couldn't get out. Ever try to move an 485lb drunk pig? ain't happenin. I Miss "Tiny". He was tasty though!:hungry3::hungry::knife::hungry3::addsalt:: chef2::whatchalookingat::hungry2::thebbq::grilling ::cookingegg::cookingdinner::cooking::crytissue::b bq::Beersausage:
