I have always heard of this happening but never seen it. My dad was using his cut off wheel today and the disc exploded and smacked him in his bottom lip,went through and cut his gums up too. Hes gonna be fine but he said it hurts like a mother phucker,and just wants a god damn cup of coffee.....lol.

Damn, that coulda been way worse... I'll be leaving the shield on mine, thank you.

Max RPM 25,000 - wonder what RPM it was at when it blew apart. :confused:

I saw that happen in a high school auto body class. Half the disc flew across the shop and cut several tendons in another guys hand. I hate air powered cut off wheels and grinders with a passion!
