    I do all the time. I had a small bolt in some lineman's pliers, I was grinding it flat on my bench grinder. It wasn't a straight surface so I pushed the bolt flush with the pliers. Using my finger. :rolleyes: Judgung by the fact that the metal had turned to that blue steel, and just the sheer pain (in comparison to a 215 watt soldering iron) I'd gauge that at at least 600-700 degrees. So now I have my finger in a bag of ice, typing with one hand plus a thumb.

    I never get deep cuts like other guys I know, only 2nd degree burns. :rolleyes: This kind of thing happen to anyone else a lot?

    well to make you feel a little bit better... once my soldering iron acidently fell of the table, and at the time it seemed like a good idea to catch it, so i did :duh:

    aftermarth, i couldn't use that hand for at least a fortnight =D

    Does anyone else think that burning flesh smells a bit like burnt chicken? :worried:

    I had a similar thing happen modding a drive bezel..... hacking away at it with a dremel left it a bit on the toasty warm side. Too bad :/

    Valimont, that's sure something I haven't heard of anyone doing before. Maybe that's why we intented soldering iron stands :)


    Is it just me, or is disaster mods changing to painful stuff I did while modding?

    Maybe we're getting in the habit of taking out mistakes on ourselves instead of our mods.
