I can recount one, an apprentice friend was using a lathe when his work coat got caught around the lead screw and dragged him towards the tailstock end away from the controls and somebody else had to stop the machine and then cut the coat so he could be released.

Fair do's - does seem a pretty slim chance though.

That's what the company thought but they changed our coats to boiler suits immediately afterwards.

Proper job although I may pinch the flexible conduit gland support idea for an electrical forum

I can't believe this thread has gone 5 pages without someone suggesting the lathe be belted up to an engine of some description!

Or run a 3-phase genny off an engine (anything capable of about 3hp would run the lathe, at a guess).
