Well it has been quite some time since I have posted. I guess I should start with my biggest screw up in a while. While rushing to finish up a frame, I went to the lathe to face down a cross tube. Not using my head I failed to remove my gloves and you know what can happen. We I got wrapped around said tube, but I was very lucky. I still have all of my fingers and my life. It was a good wake up call though. I broke my index finger, dislocated all but my pinkey, dislocated my wrist, and my elbow. So here is what I am going to say to anyone who operates machinery of any kind. Don't get too comfortable, and use your head. Nothing and I mean nothing in your shop is worth loosing a body part or your life over. So here are a few images of my extreme stupidity.
The moral of this story is use your head around machines. Your life depends on it. I am Living Proof.
