    You are lucky you lived to tell us about it. It is a bad idea to count on luck, since some of us do not have it. Thank you for telling us, as I know it must be hard to admit fault.

    WmRMeyers, fortunately it's not me in this video! I shared it here due to the relevance of the fact that it can happen even with the most experienced!

    Rule 1(debatable) Never leave the chuck key in the chuck.

    Rule 2(debatable) Don't have loose hair or clothing dangling.

    Rule 3(debatable) No jewelry on the hands or wrist. There are many things to consider for safety when operating a machine tool. I'm not really sure of the order of the rules.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    IIRC, that is the exact order we were taught in my class.

    Well, thank you for posting it, and thank HIM for being willing to post it where you could find it to show us. Everyone needs a reminder of the stakes in the games we play.

    Common sense comes into play here as well. But if common sense was so common more people would have than not.
