When dremeling, it would be best not to place any food items (such as coffee) near your cutting material, because if you do, and you eat/drink that food item, you may end up getting sick from the metal shavings that wind up in your coffee... I mean food...

ugh... I don't feel that good right now...

damn ... that sux ... also a really good idea to actually take ur personal safety into consideration when dremeling. ive had too many metal filings shot in my eye that could have been prevented with a $1 pair of safety glasses. those kinda hurt for a bit.

Kind of like Chem Lab huh? Never eat anything near "dangerous" chemicals/materials. In this case, it was metal shavings. :P Good luck getting it through your system. :(

That'd be an interesting mod, 1/2'' thick iron, bullet proof PC.

I wasn't thinking and didn't realize that there were metal shavings until I felt them in my mouth a little later on. I jsut had a stomach ache for a little while. And I was wearing safety glasses, and I 'm lucky I was, I shattered a blade and got hit right in the glasses. Me=Lucky

yeah, so did I... very painful... pray you never have to go through that. of course the amperage is what really matters, I think it was like a 15amp socket too. and I was on a ladder, needless to say I fell off of that ladder, which also hurt. I go through a lot of pain...

yeah ... i got hit with a 120 one time, it just hurt like a bitch, i also got hit by an old power supply in a PC (the 1s that u have to hook the wires onto the power switch and doesnt have the lil jumper style thing on the wires), i hooked up the power switch without a ground or sumthin i guess and when i hit the switch it shocked the hell out of me. my heartbeat was weird for about 15 mins.
