    Wearing a polishing plate - GIF

    Wearing a polishing plate. This looks pretty insane.

    That's ingenuity. Too bad the centerless grinder polisher I am getting ready to build couldn't be as simple
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    After watching I noticed I relaxed my abdominals.

    This is completely insane
    First of all wearing something around your neck The crumbs are close to moving parts of the machine
    And as a bonus he’s wearing gloves
    All of the unsafe features of this could be changed easily
    By adding a feed tube in a discharge tube and taking the chest plate and mounting it to the machine
    By doing this you wouldn’t have to even touch the machine
    Jon is there a way of downloading that video so I could show it to my students in class?

    Click-and-hold or control-click or right-click on the video and a menu should pop up from which you can select a download option.

    I do not know why you would want to show this to your students unless its a how not to do things lesson. For my part I would try this as I do a fair amount of polishing, all the forces are downwards so nothing is going to fly upwards and the gloves control the spin rate of the rod. I agree about the neck mounting not being desirable but I would rather a dedicated waist belt instead or even a harness.

    I think you're right about this, and it's actually going to be an unusually comprehensive how not to do things lesson. Gloves around rotating equipment, strangle risk, impaling risk, even right down to the fuzzy dangling knot end right in front of the grinder.

    Allow me to play devil's advocate for a moment.

    Suppose one of your really clever students says something like this after viewing the clip...

    That looks like a very clever, inventive way to get the job done. Minimum set up time, self-feeding, no expensive machinery or jigs required. If he has a bunch of rods to polish, loading the next one takes virtually no time. So, shopandmath, what is your recommended way to do this task safely yet efficiently?

    (Don't say mount it in the lathe and polish there. That's fraught with as many dangers as the pictured technique.)
