lathe machine safety precautions

While using lathe machine a safety must be needed to avoid an accident.

When we use a lathe, the following things must take great care.
  • Do not support the work piece by hand use work holding device.
  • Instead of using hand use brush to clean the chip.
  • No adjustment while the machine is operating.
  • Do not measure to attempt revolving parts.
  • Make sure that all parts are secured tightly in the lathe before starting the operation.
  • Never place tools on the drilling table.
  • Wear safety goggles and avoid loose clothing.
  • Don't keep a chuck handle attached by the chuck. Next, it flies at the moment of turning a lathe. 
  • Don't touch the byte table into the rotating chuck. Not only a byte but the table or the lathe are damaged.
