Ummm the one I was using was a hand held pneumatic grease gun gets about 7-8000psi which runs a std grease cartridge I have at home a fancy 2.5 kg tin fed hand pump operated one that goes to 11000 psi I haven't used it for years and after this episode Im going to be replacing the hoses before it gets used again ,some of the old munter lever operated ones will go up to 15000 on a blocked grease nipple Ive seen one blow the threads off the injection head on a rigid pipe (not a hose) .
The guy at my first job stabbed himself in the calf with an unprotected needle point (no safety shroud which was pretty common back in the day cause it made them easier to access the grease nipples in tight spots on cars - pre OSH lol) and somehow pulled the trigger on the gun (which is another really common injury from grease guns)
You also have to be careful around diesel injector pipes and fittings (over 1200 psi) hydraulics hoses also have dangerous pressures in them ,air hoses ,steam and water blaster hoses, paint guns etc etc etc can and do cause injuries regularly

I hate that I can't find that thread about vorbers who make stuff; specifically that excellent mini-brazier used for heating an outdoor bath. Who can find me this thread and or the picture again?

running over a piece of broken drillbit and it not only going through the tyre but punching a hole in the inner wall of my rim :hmmm:



Still, there's already 33 other holes in it, 1 more can't hurt really :huh:

I have a cold :-(

Which would be fine, a normal part of life with kids, but I was supposed to be doing laps in the Wainuiomata 6hr today.

So... Vorb... With the ads...

I'm interested in some of the products I see... So I click on them... And that redirects me to a Vorb list of products, and I click the product again... and 50% of the time I get redirected back to exactly the same list page, and the other 50% of the time I get directed to the store website which says "soz bra no longer available chur au".

Pretty close to just turning adblocker back on.
