I'm in welding class and one of the auto mech teachers came over to use the torch. He was heating up some rivets to get a ball joint out some big ass lowers. All of a sudden BOOM, sounds like 12 gauge going off in the shop. I was in my welding booth so im thinking some crazy guy just came in starting to shoot. I walk out my booth and I see the mech teacher holding his hand with blood pouring out. Turns out he ball came out the casing and the snap ring exploded and went through his hand. Has this ever happened to anyone.

probably had massive spring pressure in there .. to aide the ball joint in exploding .. i get the joint apart first ... then using and angle grinder grind of the heads ...then use a punch and hammer or drill out the rest

happened to me once. i didnt get hurt or anything. i was using a torch to cut the rivets and was not paying attention to what i was doing and i started to notice that from the heat the ball itself was hard to move in the joint. then about a min later BOOM. it hit the ground and shot out of the bay door were i was working. i learned to pay close attention when doin it. lol scared the shit out of at first, i was affraid to look down. but it didnt get me. lmfao
