Laughed my Gluteus Maximus Off!!

Reminded me off a day LONG TIME ago when I was using an OLD but Powerful 1/2” Drill on a scaffold with a 3/4” Carbide Masonry Bit. Drilled through the Concret, hit solid wood behind, grabbed, and threw me right off the Scaffold. Broke 2 fingers. Sprained Shoulder etc.

BUT! Pleased to say that the 15 year old Drill was none the worse for it.

I’ve had a drill grab me a couple of times… yikes!

This was hilarious. I shared with my houseguests. We all laughed, and then we had to watch it again.

True story:

A co worker and I were installing data cables into a very old stone building in the south of England about 20 years ago. He was trying to drill a hole through a stone wall with a drill much like that one. As he breaks through the other side of the wall, he drills into an electrical power outlet. As he does so, the drill chuck touches a copper water pipe on his side of the wall. The drill is now live, and the chuck arcs against the copper pipe, welding it momentarily to the pipe. As the chuck turns, it breaks the weld, making a tiny hole in the pipe. The resulting fine jet of water squirts out of the pipe and into the power supply of the server that we had just that day installed.

I think you Jinxed me!! .... LOL… TODAY I was trying to drill a Hole through 3/4” Fir Ply with a 2” Hole Saw in a 3/8” Drill. Wood kept wanting to turn so I put the Trigger on Lock. Held the Drill with one hand, wood with the other. Hole Saw grabbed. Spun out of my Hand. Whipped around and Cracked the back of my Hand. NICE BRUISE!

BUT! I admit it was a Stupid thing to do! I should have Clamped the wood down before even trying.
