    jluc smelling pretty

    A co-worker of mine was wearing gloves while using a bench grinder. He got a little too close and it grabbed the finger tip of one of the gloves and pulled his hand in. Tore him up pretty good. Had he not been wearing gloves he may have just needed a bandaid on his finger tip instead of a trip to the ER.

    Hembree Not as pretty smelling

    Years ago where I work at a rotating winch driveshaft stripped a man to his underwear. The winch driveshaft runs under the floorboard of the skidder. The floorboard was out and he was in the cab starting the machine. The driveshaft grabbed his pants leg. He was a strong man and was able to pull away as it ripped his clothes off. Also, don't wear rings around equipment as well.

    Not wearing gloves, etc. was some of the first advice I received when I started turning. @jluc This is great advice.

    Sounds like a "Tool Time "episode, Al was working on a wood lathe and Tim backed up to close and it ripped off his shirt .
    I try not even to wear long sleeve shirts when I go for a spin.
    I have had steelwool ripped out of my hand before and that was shocking .
    No rings,Watches or Bling of any kind . Things happen to quickly .
