Steel anchor bolts can be very dangerous to make as well, depending on what specific kind of machine that you use. I was unlucky enough to find this out first hand.
I was working in a metal fabrication shop and using on an older machine called a kinefac some years ago. The rods I was working with had some slight twists to them. I was new and didn’t think that it was a real big deal – until the rod jerked and somehow my glove got caught; my whole arm was pulled up into the machine.
I ended up being okay, but I did some damage that I’ll always have to deal with. The ligaments and muscles were torn up pretty badly, and the machine itself actually stretched my skin and now I’ve got permanent stretch marks under that arm. I will never regain one hundred percent usage of that arm again, but I’ve still got about eighty.
It could have been a lot worse, though, so I’m thankful.
Like they say, the best thing to do is get up and go again. I was back at work the next day on that same old kinefac.
