In splitting wood on Friday I learned the importance of proper safety attire. I had the splitter in the upright position to split some large stuff down. I was moving a piece of Ash 12" thick that was about 32" by 20" weighing more than I can lift. I was kinda rolling and sliding it when I slipped and it landed on my toe. My toe cushioned it so it did not bust the concrete slab. Just putting this up as a reminder to be safe out there. I will be reminded for some time.

I was talking about "JUST THAT". Mentioning it That I don't have a pair of steel toe boots as I have made a couple of near miss stingers While running the splitter. You got a nice Direct Hit! I wonder how far across tha vally they heard you Praise the lord? Today for me? is Buy a pair of steel toe's day! Thank for the insight! OWE!

I still have steel toed shoes from when I worked in the factory many moons ago. They would have prevented that.

Looks like a gentle reminder. DANG!  As well Crocs don't have steel insert either. Hot steel will come right up on through the sole on those things if not falling through the holes on top of Croc. Live and learn :D

Looks nasty, as the old saying goes, once but twice shy.

Best pair of boots I ever had were a pair of those ugly son of a gun Green Dunlop boots

Only had 2 problems, one was about 90 percent my fault, ran on ice, broke my thumb. Other problem was that the steel sole plate bent the tread downward, after about a bajillion miles on them.

They were so comfortable I woulda worn them to school if they didn't smell like a cows rear. I guess I wouldn't have gotten into so many fights then

Here's a pic of the ugly buggers image.png
