I talked to one of my buddies yesterday, he almost had his hand cut in two when the head shattered, and it was a brand new grinder from HF. He said he turned it on, started to grind, the head, not the stone, blew. Cut him across his stomach, halfway through the palm of his hand, and up into the wrist. He was bleeding terribly bad, they rushed him into the ER, stitched him up, now they have to cut him open (today) to get more pieces out of him. He was lucky enough to be wearing a heavy sweatshirt, it may have gutted him if not for that. I'll gather up some more info from him. He is going to sue. Dan
