Yep, I've had brads come out about 1/32" past the front of a cabinet door.
You can quickly find them by running your hand over a project to check for
I've got a large supply of craft paints so I sanded the thing down and
touched it with a paint to match before sealing. I'm not sure if it was the
best method, but it worked. I don't know how long that will hold up,

Sorry to hear of your mishap(s). I share your pain.
When my dad still was alive and running his automotive machine shop I
used to give him a hand on the weekends.
One day I assembled a little four-banger industrial engine for him and
raised it off the bench with the roll-around hoist to finish spray
painting the bottom. Finished with that I started to roll it out of
the way and had the wheels catch in the expansion groove in the
concrete floor. The engine started to swing and the CG moved outside
the support zone and over it went.
Now this could have just been a 283 Chevy with an easily replaced
steel oil pan but noooo.... this had to be a damn near one-of-a-kind
engine with a *cast iron* oil pan. Fortunately, the customer was very
understanding and we managed to braze up the cracks and machine the
pan rails flat and save the day.
Reminds me of repairing a whole house fan I had in the shop. Had the motor in
my hand, foot slipped on a joist, motor zipped on through the louvers. Where
did it light? Right on my Unifence, of course.

EVEN IF the Law of Perverse Statistics is strapped to the back of a cat,
it still reads the same. <muffled guffaw>
As for the other scenario, I'll just suggest that the "Harvard Law of
Sociological Research" applies:
'Under the most rigorously controlled conditions
of temperature, pressure, and humidity,
the organism will do as it d*mn well pleases.'

Kind of a strange irony in the above sig line there Charlie.
Not beating on you, we all do things like that every once in a while,
most of us are still alive and mostly un-maimed mostly by the grace of God,
not because we are that all-fired smart or alert 100% of the time. Glad to
hear you weren't injured and that no major damage occured.
