    Thank you for letting us know, I recently bought some saw blades off ebay for my dad. I think they are ok and I dont think they came from Manchester, but will check.

    So glad you are ok, what a lucky escape!

      Oooh, that's not good! That can happen if they get overheated, or get heated and cooled quickly...

          I use grinding wheels a lot and always buy known brands for that very reason, its worth paying a bit more.
          Usually if the wheel has a fault it will run out of true, (wobble or the machine will vibrate more than usual) if thats happening then turn it off and stand well clear till it stops, a visual inspection under a good light will usually show up the fault, then before you throw it away smash it so you dont use it by mistake,

                I always check to see if they a running true etc and always careful handling them hence reason I was shocked when it went bang (I shouted swear words i didn't know i knew)LOL
                I had to have the remains dug out of my arm today (ouch) so stings a bit now.
                Last time i had anything go bang was 5 years ago when a brushcutter blade sheared off and stuck in a rose bush
