Today's Hint - Don't do things like this

Page 1 of 7  
I am sure I am not the only one who carries a portable phone handset to the garage shop.
I recommend not laying the handset on the belt of your belt/disk sander station - especially if the switch was inadvertently turned on while the machine was unplugged.
Just a thought. No particular reason.
Damn!

I know a person (very well, in fact) who did the same trick with one of those divided boxes filled with different sizes of woodscrews. This person was very upset. Billh

My bowl lathe uses a wrench to hold the spindle while undoing the face plate. Remove the wrench before turning on the lathe. Remove the wrench before turning on the lathe. Remove the wrench before turning on the lathe..... I found it. It can fly but it can not hide (very long)

God bless and safe turning

No-volt release switches ! Europe might be full of Evil Socialist Nannies and free nurses, but we do use the right sort of switches.

Hmm reminds of a time I plugged in the belt sander (hand) and it was still in the locked on position and was on a 20' extension cord... Duh

They's fast, ain't they? Good think it was only a 20' cord!
(At least that's what I've "heard".)

Gosh. After these posts - I feel better. I thought I was the only one who did things like this!
By the way, the phone survived in fine shape with a few sander scuffs. After some sanding in place on the belt it shot it up against the stop, flew up into the air, bounced off of a wire frame shelf and almost landed in my hand. No, I am not that coordinated. Just lucky.

Ron that's the reason I have a safety on my lathe that if the power has been interrupted in any which way it will not start up if you would plug it back in or turn it back on while it is in forward of reverse mode, I have to turn of the power switch then set the lathe switch to neutral and then turn the power back on, seems awkward but it done quick and it is safe that way. No I do not have that on my sander, I don't have or want a cell or porta phone, when I'm turning I don't answer phones, LOML will do that and if it ever is for me I do get informed, (they can never leave me alone (G)
Have fun and take care Leo Van Der Loo

When using your forearm to wind up an extension cord, slow down for the last couple of feet.
