was soldeirng some wires together and after allowing the soldeinrg iron to heat up I picked the iron up like a ball point pen...

YEOWWWWWWW!!!!!!!

needless to say, i didnt hold it for long!

I've done this as well with a butane iron it was nasty.

I'll add my own, I was grinding with a rotary tool without safety glasses and shot a sliver into my eyeball, I could feel it sticking out when I shut my eyelid.
I had it plucked out at an eye surgeon and luckily no damage done.

A few weeks ago, I was test running a .40 size aero engine clamped up hard (or so I thought) in a workmate. ****** thing came out of the clamps, engine, prop, fuel tank and went into my hand.

Result, half inch of right index finger left hanging by about 5 mm of skin, and big flap opened up like a meat slice off my thumb - lots of blood, 2 lines of splashed blood up the side of the wall, trip to hosp, temp repairs, sent home overnight, back next day for proper repairs under general anesthetic and sent home.

Much mickey taking by friends and family  :}

Back to work as usual, not even getting any sick time off.   :o

This will be good for getting a dig at scivers who take time off for a sniffle.
