Just a reminder to us all not to get complacent regarding wearing Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) to suit the task being undertaken, in this case I'm talking eye protection.


Whilst using my 'Dremel' to de-rust a tool I assumed the bits flicking into my face were just rust however when I finally stopped I realised they were also brass wires:

Luckily I was wearing my safety googles so my eyes were still OK. On a more serious episode I had a similar thing with a wire cup-brush in an angle grinder: those steel wires actually penetrated my clothing and stung but again, at least they didn't end up in my eyes.
