On that horrible lathe accident, did anyone notice what caused the operators accident? My wife just now pointed it out to me.

It's in all the pictures but one. look at the top of the chuck toward the off side.

Oh, sorry. you may have discarded the pictures as they were rather gross. My wife printed them out and took them to work with her to a safety meeting. The pictures show a file lodged in the chuck. He must have been filing and got his shirtsleeve caught.

Your womans got a good eye, I did not see that --- mostly because I had to hurry through the pics (too much for me), could also be the file slipped into and inbetween the chucks teeth and then caught way more throw which in turn got the fabric involved. Thanks for pointing it out.
