Wow that cleaned up nice.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

So , I have these two Cp die grinders . One was an experiment into "porting the rotary air motor" . The usual hog out the passages and not so subtly alter the port timing so that the torque went away and the RPM was somewhere north of 25K . The other is near stock save for it usually wears the 3" cut off due to its torque .

So I built up a 2 1/2" mop out of 5 or 6 layers and stuck it in the 30K rpm die grinder ....

First trigger pull the mop exploded and for a instant I considered myself fortunate that the debris had somehow missed my face . I looked up to see a fair portion of the chamois wrap itself around a whip antenna and bend it near horizontal , directly away from me . In a near Warner Brothers cartoon moment I froze , waiting for the inevitable .

What didn't hit me full in the face ricocheted off into the air compressor belt guard , there to foul and dismount the belt with enough force to blow the guard off . The rest knocked my cigarettes off the the bench to be soaked by the last beer in the house also falling off bench .

it was worth telling

If it leaks after all this? I'm gonna pull a "Brad" and bulldoze the fucker!

Ha, I see a stock die grinder isn't dangerous enough for you  ;D
