    I use grinders for ten hours a day, 6 days a week, and I know they can be really mean! Lets see your battle scar!

    If you didn't loose any appendages, it can't be all that gruesome. Remember- scars are proof that we can survive our mistakes.

    Damn man. Looks to me like it caught your pants and pulled itself into your leg. Either that, or it had a trigger lock, and was on auto.
    Either way, that's a bad one!

    That is certainly brutal my friend. I hope that the guard will stay on the grinder from now on! Exploding blades kill people all the time.

    Thats a common farmers accident around my neck of the woods, they tend to apply the "She'll be right" attitude to everything.

    You are very lucky that it didn't do that much damage I've seen peoples legs turned to ribbons after something like that.
    In one of the small towns I grew up around there was a guy that died from an accident like that about 10 years ago, he was in the farm shed by himself and the disk exploded. Shrapnel severed the main artery in his leg, poor bastard.
    Since that happened every time I pick up a grinder I double check everything religiously.

    Ya know, we could turn this into a, 'Show pics of my worst injury' thread. I couldn't participate since my worst injury happened with no camera around- I got bit by a shark on the right foot when I was 15. But I'm sure there some more 'blood and guts' photo's lying around here...

    Yeah man I came close to severing my femoral I could have died if it was a little more to the right of my leg and it cut clean to the bone if you would have seen it before it closed you would have been like Jesus that is nasty

    Actually, the shark bite didn't hurt at all at the time. Their teeth are so sharp that it was a friend of mine who was snorkeling with me that first noticed the injury. But once the realization and the sting of the salt water set in, yeah, it hurt like the dickens!
