Safety First

This is a wire cup brush.

They are used as an attachment for angle grinders to clean rust, grease and grime off metal. They are very handy, but wear out easily.

As the brush wears down, the bristles break and fly off at tremendous speeds.

Here is one that flew across my shop and stuck in a leaf of my new tea plant.

And this one flew fast enough to embed itself in my finger.  If the skin on my hands has been made tough from years of working with them, imagine how far this might have penetrated my eye had it traveled in a different direction.

Let this represent the importance of proper safety glasses!
