Never reach over or across the area of the
rotating chuck or cutting tool.
Never attempt to remove strands of
material while the chuck is rotating. Stop
the lathe, then use pliers to remove any
excess material that could pose a hazard
or obstruct the view of the work.
Before removing the workpiece from the
chuck, move the cutting tool away from the
workpiece. The sharp tip of the cutting tool
could cut you.
Be careful when removing work that has
just been machined. Both the work and the
tool used to cut it may be very hot from the
frictional forces of cutting.
