LATHE OPERATIONS - OD1645 - LESSON 1/TASK 1
f. On turret lathes, care must be taken not to catch loose or torn clothing
on a stock that is supported in the collet with chucks and extends beyond
the headstock of the lathe.
g. If a coolant or cutting oil is used, the operator should take care when
adjusting the splash pans to prevent the liquid from splashing on the floor.
The cutting oil or coolant can make the floor beneath the lathe slippery and
cause the operator to lose his balance and suffer injury.
