I was just gonna say, "have any of you even been in a metal shop? those are grinder sparks" but then I saw your comment

I'd like to see you put your bare hand in the direct spray of that and tell me it doesn't hurt, on top of that if one of the shards ruptures the tube a tiny bit and the glowing hotness of the spark (which i'll remind you is a little red hot piece of metal) could ignite the gas and cause a massive explosion.

those tanks have something called flashback arrestors, this prevents any flame from traveling through the hose into the tank, they are actually very safe.

yes, you're right, but that's only if they're being used, they aren't yet "required", they're just the smart thing to do

Even then, if OSHA saw that, they would shut you down
#31 - swiftimpact (11/06/2012) [-]
it doesnt hurt ive done it in shop class... they hurt like hell if they get caught on you but when you just have your hand in front of it the sparks just bounce off and fall to the ground
User avatar #32 - onefifthcooler (11/06/2012) [-]
I never said they didn't hurt. I was using a grinder on some cement in my basement and got a piece of red hot cement in the eye, that fucking hurt.
User avatar #33 - onefifthcooler (11/06/2012) [-]
just re-read that, I was just assuring him that there was no problem (even if they could damage the hose that is)
User avatar #22 - heartlessrobot (11/06/2012) [-]
I've done it. They're hot, but not hot enough to leave anything other than small red marks.
User avatar #23 - xtrmbragnrytz (11/06/2012) [-]
still you get a good one (pressing the grinder hard enough) and it'll leave a better burn, plus lots of them glow on the ground for a while so, if they land right that stays in your hand. all in all, it's just a stupid idea
User avatar #20 - Buhadog (11/05/2012) [-]
It's true they can't cause any long term injuries (except if they get in your eye) but they aren't exacly harmless... Most of them are small but every once in a while some slightly bigger chunks of hot iron/steel can fly off... they can cause some minor burns. Even so they can never burn trough steel.

While you are correct, other metals hold heat longer. Take Stainless steel. When grinding it in comparison to mild steel it will become hotter quicker and stay hotter longer. Also the different metals splinter in different ways. Mild steel flakes or chips where as stainless needles and spikes which makes it dangerous in flying debris especially when heated by a torch or in this case a grinder.

Actually they can burn human skin pretty bad. Do you even weld?

I see what you did there
#18 - afarewelltoarms (11/05/2012) [-]
yup the sparks from a welder would burn but those are grinder sparks those things and pretty harmless also welder sparks don't flow out like that.
