Sharpest, worst cut was with a stringie plastic PEEK. It was just one
long strand. And I was new to plastics (its just plastic). Reached in
and started to pull it out of a lathe so it didn't wrap round the
tools. I still have the scars. Man was that stupid.
Hardest to dig out are rough edged tincey side-milled steel alloys.
The *sharp* edged ones just flip out of your fingers if you whip your
wrist like you are throwing a Ninja star. There's a dart board at a
near by bar and we play for beers after work flipping the slivers out
at the bull's eye. It's all in the wrist.
