Ok, they tell you to always wear closed toed shoes when you’re working in the shop. Here in S.D. the weather is too nice to have long jeans, leather shoes, and steel toes. So I went out in shorts, a tank top, and flip flops.
I was mounting my bench grinder on a 12’ work bench I just finished. I had a ratchet on top, and an open end wrench I was using to hold the nut below.
2 maybe 3 things went wrong
#1 – I dropped the wrench on my unprotected big toe. Ouch!
#2 – the wrench then deflected under a glue up table I have stored under the bench making it a 2 step process to retrieve the wrench.
#3 – I moved the table, I bent down, picked up the wrench and I hit the back on my head on the way back up…ouch again.
