brad_Nailer even the sawstop safty can be manuel overruled
anytime you want …. don´t misunderstand me I´m for the safty tecnic
all the way but even here in Denmark where there is so much control
and safty regulations you wont believe it
there always some workers who find a way around it just to make 50 cent more in an hour
they even teach new people how to do it even before they have used the maschinery one second
and therefor don´t know a damm thing of how it suposed to be operated and sound
I know of a guy who lost half of a hand in a shaper under two minuts after he had started to work
the first day at the job and I know if the other coworkers had learned him the right way
of using the mashine he cuoldn´t have been hurt
no they overruled the buildin safty even though the boss had said they wuold get fired if he saw it once more time …... ten men was fired that day becourse of one stupid accident
