Goodness, what a safety freak...

It's good to be safe, but not good to be paranoid.

The oddest accident was on Monster Garage:

High speed pneumatic grinding tool- skips up this dude's arm, off his chest, and knocks one of his teeth out.


No matter how safe you are, you'll get screwed over somehow:twisted:

Dentists use dremels, also known as drills (I had a talk to my dentist the last time I had a cavity) and those can go up to 350k rpm![:o]!

Be careful aetherguy881, If dental dremels spin at 350,001 rpm I've heard that the entire space time fabric rips at the seams causing the universe to collapse. It also might hurt your tooth when the dentist pushes a little too hard and hits your tooth nerve. Dang I'd rather have the univeral collapse than the tooth pain. It seems quicker.

Think dremels can be dangerous? I've got an end grinder. It looks like a giant dremel, it's over 2' long, has a 1hp motor, and spins at 23,000rpm. Needless to say, you DON'T let that thing get away from you.

think about the size of a dentist drill, first off. do you really think something that small cant be powered by a small air comp? of course it can

Well seeing as that those drills are electric..... no.

There are TONS of them on Ebay. People who work with ceramics like them. Search for dental turbine.

No Sgort, they are pnuematic turbines.

I once dropped an angle grinder on my leg due to slipperyness caused by excess PVC dust (I was beveling the outside of some 8" gasket connect SDR). It would've been catastrophic had I not been wearing really thick pants (Carhart's RULE!). All it left was a big scuff.
