How many things were done wrong in this short video? It had to hurt, really, really bad!

Ouch. I noticed the person in the background didn’t even react; they just stood there with arms crossed and looked as the guy was pretty much knocked out.

Yeh, the text for the video says “He had to go to the hospital to be treated to a concussion, broken nose and broken bones in the area around his eyebrow.”. My guess is that the student who took the video and then put it on You Tube will probably not get a great grade for the course.

Seemed to me he sped it up when he should have slowed it down, full face sheild might have helped

The only thing missing in the video is “Hold my beer and watch this …”

He lost it at the tailstock. The blank could have had an angle to the live center, and only had about 50% holding there. Could also have had a creeping tailstock.

When I turn up my speed, if it rattles like this did, I turn it back down until the rattle stops. Then I proceed.

Did anyone notice the guy hiding behind the band saw?? ............. Jerry (in Tucson)

I’d say two:

1. Turning too fast. When a workpiece comes off the lathe it should fall down not fly up into your face.

2. A face shield would have helped, but something that big would probably still have hurt pretty bad.

Actually, I think he says “it’s slowing down” and then he ramps up the speed. Then if you watch he makes a pass across the work but takes his eyes off what he is doing to look at the motor (probably to check the speed since he jacked it up way too much). It is when he takes his eyes off the end of the tool that he gets the bad catch and the piece makes him pay the price for his lack of attention.

Jerry: Thanks for pointing out the kid behind the bandsaw. Too funny! Probably the smartest kid in the room.

I would have thought that in a classroom environment they would have a guard installed on the lathe. That would have saved the instructor’s face, but not his bruised ego.

Looks pretty casual for a teacher. My shop teacher wore a button up shirt, slacks, and a tie which he removed or tucked in when in the shop.

Yeh, way back when some of us were kids in school, the shop teachers often did double duty as coaches for the various sports teams. They garnered some of their respect in the classroom from having some control over the fates of the aspiring athletes. Probably vice-versa!

Having said that, I think taking a flying chunk of wood to the face off the lathe would go a long way to having the students label you a doofus. So many things wrong in the video!

I thought he was using a scraper like the easy wood. He is holding it up like a gouge so just a little above center and a slight catch allows the wood to walk up the tip being leveraged out.
Yeah the students may label him a doofus but at least not a pansie for not expanding his abilities.

When I taught woodworking the state osha inspector required a guard one one of the four lathes to protect me not the students. I couldn’t convince the principal to equip the other three. I did not have anything fly of the lathes in 40 years. I always check before a student turned it on. We had no chucks it was faceplates and between centers.
