Well, I guess I'll be getting the idiot of the week award today.... I was milling out some parts at work tonight, and decided that it was time to clear out the chip bin in the back. Trouble was, I had a metal bin full of parts right next to the table, and didn't wait for the cycle to finish before walking right between the bin and the mill table. Kinda did one of those Wile E. Coyote things that he does when he runs off the edge of a cliff when I realized about one second too late that I had just done something really, really dumb.
Long story short, when the cycle finished and the table homed itself, my upper thighs got compressed into about 3" wide gap on the X axis, and then the Y axis homed dragging me right into the raised corner of the bin... The guy at the next station had to free me with a pallet jack, as he didn't know how to operate the mill. Luckily, nothing got broken, but I've got some lumps the size of softballs on both sides of each of my thighs. Now I'm afraid to go to bed, since I already know how *that* is gonna feel in the morning- and I've got another thousand parts that must be finished before Sunday.
The irony of it is that I won $25 on Tuesday in our "Safety Month" drawing. Should've seen that coming...
