    'OLD' wheels

    Please break the wheels up before throwing them out. Someone see them out and try to use them in their machine.
    It has happened to me. I, like you stytooner, were not seriously hurt.

        Thanks, Guys.
        I actually used the wheels as back fill for a concrete slab that I poured. Don't think they will be rotating any time soon.
        That shoulder finally cleared up completely as well. Only the little scar remains to tell tales about.

          Lee, Is there no type of guard on that, perhaps you can show us a photo. I have always wondered why the never seems to be a guard on these types of machine to eliminate those types of accidents or at least a retrofit to stop these wheels when they disintgrate Wheelstop, what am I thinkin I could get rich

            Not looking to hijack this thread, but it seems like the correct place and topic to unveil my latest lack of intelligence,

            As Lee said, they are called accidents (not)

              Here is an image of it showing the drill bit sharpening attachment. It does have a partial cover in place. It is extremely doubtful that would actually stop anything but straight forward explosion. It would have sent that pieces further right I think and nailed me even more. There is another part of cast iron that goes on this to completely cover the stone except for a very small access on the front. You just can't use many attachments with that in place.
              Can't sharpen saw blades, drill bits, chain saws or bevel the leading edge of splitters with it on. Sharpening chisels, lathe tools and mower blades is about all you can do with the cast iron armor in place.

                See now mine has a cover than completely covers that left and right hand side and a lot more of the front than that, but I inherited it from my Dad and there's nothing,not even a motor designation on it as to who may have manufactured it. I would venture to say that if the wheel were to come apart it more than likely would jam stuck immediately rather than being allowed to shoot outwards. I'll see if I can post a pic,but since the move it chits all over the place and I haven't been able to find my camera lately or anything else for that matter, now wheres that

                  One of my instructors that taught me guitar building has three "half fingers" from a joiner accident. That was good motivation to be careful. I'm always making sure where my fingers are.

                  Sanding off knuckle skin is a different story.
