This was an unreal clip. I thought I was watching a bunch of monkeys that have never even seen a lathe before? Like others have said why did it take so long to shut the machine down? I have a 1946 Logan, one of the first ones built after the retooling. Even that machine has a large on off switch that is impossible to miss. And then why did it take so long for one of those monkeys to pick up the chuck key and open it? Also why did Einstein have to open it so many turns? The shaft was only about an inch in diameter? One 1/2 to a full turn would have been enough to release the man? Remind me to never occupy the same machine shop is this bunch of monkeys. I’ve never seen anything like this.
My initial thoughts while watching was the same as Frank and my thoughts then went to the camera also.
Reminds me of a young friend (around 1980) came to work with a seek looking bandage on his noggin. I, of course showed concern, and asked what happened. He had been using a half inch drill under a low house and who needs a comanchie to get scalped when you have a 1Hp drill with jacobs chuck: I believe DIYers still dont need/use hair nets and forget confined spaces.
