Was putting a new main spring into a mechbox. Followed all the tricks to do this without any problems, except forgot to do this in an area that is clear (or inside a large clear plastic bag).

Screwdriver I was using to keep the spring steady slipped. Fully compressed new spring went on a speedy ballistic trajectory 'somewhere'. Contents of mechbox went 'elsewhere'.

I nearly cried.
