    Remember, Now that the weather has turned colder to not wear loose knit clothing around machinery... especially milling machines :)

    Hi,

    As an old and retired Medic, I'm always up for a good trauma.....

    But you are a wee bit out of my old service area.

    A good reminder for all of us to be careful in how we dress.

    I had a hot chip drop inside my shirt. It stopped at my belt. Didn't feel good. I grabbed my belt an pulled outward. The hot chip was now in my shorts.....

    No rings, no watches, no long hair, no long sleeve shirts.
    Hot chips to hot pants is a dance . . .

    Jennifer, you are fortunate the fabric was weak enough to fail and not wrap you up in the mill and cause serious harm. I am reminded of a young lady wearing too loose of pants near a lathe and got snagged by the chuck. Dis-asst'er. :D

    Thank goodness you were fortunate that your garment took the brunt. Thank you for sharing and reminding all of us that we can get complaisant.

    Jennifer,
    I am glad you are alright and you are able to take something from this experience.
    Happy chip making in the future.

    The are a few pictures on the net showing someone completely wrapped around a (big)lathe's chuck. It's not a pretty sight AT ALL...! If you go and look for them, you have been warned...!
    Before I start my mill I always think twice and I also look for some loose parts on the bed.

    fortunately not, i was milling with a small bit, so as my sleve was winding up, i was able to hit the stop button with my free hand.

    It was a real stupid rookie mistake. I have seen my share of industrial accidents when I was machining for a living, I know how ugly it could have been.

    Chris, I once saw someone two machines away (a big turret lathe) who got their long hair tangled up. The funeral was lovely.

    When I was still teaching, my motto OF COURSE was safety first ...ALWAYS..!
    When my pupils were busy working with a drill-press they had to wear hairbands. Sometimes they forgot them in their locker. My answer to that was : they had to wear one of mine. I had a few in stock just in case. Only, mine were all pink colored. At first they were embarrassed, saying, sir this is not cool..!.. but in the end they put it on and we had lots of laughs... Was really funny, 17/18 year old guys wearing a pink hairband... :D
