Work shop squid?

So I'm working on a School Carnival project (DJChyk is the Chairman which obligates me by default). I'm using my dremel with cutting wheel to trim off the sharp ends of some wood screws on a "sponge toss" thingy I just built. (teacher sticks head thru hole and students throw wet sponges at them)

Anyway.....DJChyk pokes her head out the garage door and says in her best attempt at a nagging wife ..."Are you wearing safety glasses?" Of course I'm not. Does that make me a work shop squid?

I do all my own stunts.

Only if you didn't put them on after she reminded you. A squid would have given her the finger and kept on dremeling.

You did not use dremel with cutting wheel often to not be wearing glasses

Re: Work shop squid?

Yeah, jetb is right. It didn't take me long to realize that if bits of whatever I was grinding were hitting me in the face, it wouldn't be long before something hit my eyes. So I cut it with my eyes closed. Wasn't the straightest cut, but I could at least see it afterwards. Haven't grinded without safety glasses since.

On the other hand, you do have two eyes...
