I'm about to do you a real solid here. If you get aids. Every morning, take a baby aspirin, okay? If you're gonna fly, take two. Boom. That shit will be gone in a month

Some common sense advice and of course this foto is a fake but still this guy is an idiot. 

 

The chances that these discs come apart and hit you are very small, maybe as small as having an accident on a highway. Still, you don't take your seatbelt off and disable the airbags, now do you?

 

The guard is hindering work every now and then so you take it off when necessary but in general you fucking leave it on. There is a good reason why he did not really look for the piece that took off, and it is that it probably got stuck good in a wood surface.

 

When he tried to deliberately break the disc he suddenly wore gloves, although an "exploding disc" would only give you "minor tissue damage". Go and fuck off coward. Any disc may have a manufacturing fault or you could slip and block it. Wearing gloves is a good idea (this is not a stand mounted drill or a laithe after all), especially when working without a guard as you then don't have as much control over where the sparks fly.

 

Also even minor tissue damage may lead to infections btw. 

 

So if you are new to working with these kind of tools get expert advice and the correct safety gear.

The chance isn't really that small when you work with them daily. I have numerous co-workers that are blind in one eye and or have had pieces stuck in safety glasses (Commerical plumbing). The problem is people use the disks long after they should be replaced, which eventually causes them to shatter, especially when cutting cast iron pipe.
