This is not carpet cleaning related, but interesting. I was on the phone while disconnecting my battery on my travel trailer earlier. I arced my crescent wrench through my ring to the opposite battery post. Pretty knarly burn. Had to run to the dogs water bowl to get the ring cooled down enough to get it off. I've disconnected hundreds of batteries. I weld frequently, so it wasn't ignorance. Just distraction. Titanium ring.

I've always worked on motors never wore a watch never wear rings either


Reminds me of my automotive teacher energizing small capacitors and chucking them at kids.

I know someone who did that with their watch and also got burned when they arced it.

I was helping a friend with his battery once and his wife said just tap the terminal..I told her no if you get a loose post you can cause a spark. Well I just barely turned the terminal and post was bad it literally blew up in my face, sounded like a shotgun blast

Time and place . I wouldn't have my " little finger " today were it missing from my " ring finger " the night it got slammed between two mold halves of a glass forming machine .
Saved that finger from being cut off . I had severe burns from the 800 degree molds but it saved my finger and hand !! Best $40 I ever spent at K Mart !! Yep , I'm that old !!
Lucky enough to still be married to the lady who put it on that finger over 40 years ago too .
Sometimes ......... It's better to be " lucky " than GOOD !!
All the Best , Ed

yowsers! I'm left handed so my ring finger is always closer to the action...for the above reason I haven't worn one in years. That looks painful!

I work as a Career Firefighter, and many of us do NOT wear our metal wedding rings. We wear a ring by a company called QALO. They have many styles. So whats my point, the bands are rubber and won't conduct electric and if snagged will tear. The one thing I like is the fact that I can show my commitment to my wife and not increase my chances of an injury. www.qalo.com

My older brother who had a friend. His wife to be had an engagement ring on. I live in Canada, so it gets cold. Anywho, she pulled her car into a car wash in the winter. The big overhead door had a chain. As she was letting it down, it wasn't counterweighted, and she went to grab the chain to slow the door from slamming down. Well, the ring got caught, AND IT DEGLOVED HER FINGER..... yeah, not so fun...... I don't wear jewelry because of this.....
