From my perspective, attempting to steal someone's wallet and getting rekt yourself is kinda fitting, but we still felt it was important put this disclaimer here - LS

    I've got a tech tip for ya. Invest in some left handed drill bits for tackling bolts like that. If you can find them, most of the time when they bite in they just unscrew the bolt for you. Normal drills work as well obviously but you have to drill all the way through the screw head every time with them.

    Linus was right about gloves, when working with rotating tools like that gloves are usually not something you want to wear. If your finger gets caught instead of getting cut like you would be without the glove, the glove can get ripped off and sometimes pull your hand with it causing severe injury. With an angle grinder this is probably unlikely, but with something like a table saw it’s easy to lose a whole hand
