I was using a 4 1/2" grinder working on a steering arm for an old tractor. It had worn and wouldnt tighten up so I was using the grinder to open the slot up slightly. This would make it clamp tighter. I was holding the end I was grinding on with my left hand, the other end was still attached. The disc grabbed in the slot and ran up my thumb. In this case a glove would have helped alot. Like you, might be skinned up but not layed open...Live and learn I guess.
