This is a question DIY disasters

I just can't do power tools. They always fly out of control and end up embedded somewhere they shouldn't. I've no idea how I've still got all the appendages I was born with.

Add to that the fact that nothing ends up square, able to support weight or free of sticking-out sharp bits and you can see why I try to avoid DIY.

Tell us of your own DIY disasters.

Was it a Wickes drill by any chance?
Black one with orange trigger/buttons?

I ask because I have that one and it's exactly how you described. They were selling them as a set along with a battery drill, a jigsaw, and a sander, at a reduced price (I believe £50 for the lot). Everything but the battery drill is completely useless, if not outright dangerous to use.
