    You are absolutely right about wearing a ring in the shop. I will take it in for resizing today so it will more easily come off. Until then, it is off of my hand. In the past it has come off once every year or two with great effort.

    Thanks,

    Rick

    I could not agree more about the perils of wearing any kind of ring on the finger for anyone involved in industrial work of any kind. As a youngster working in a brickworks I jumped off the back of a tipper lorry and the ring I was wearing caught in the tailgate catch and cut my finger badly, I still have the ring but I have not worn it since. My father was a maintenance man for battery powered milk floats and his workmate somehow got his metal watch strap across terminals causing a bad burn.

    And the littlest machine tool can do damage. I remember when my first lathe, a Unimat was running and I stuck my finger into the chuck jaw. Can you say permanently crooked finger?

    I would have appreciated a close up of the work. He could have at least move closer to the camera.

    oh well I got the idea.

    Pretty much the track I took It isnít worth the risk. Besides those watches pull on the hair on your wrists.
