C.
Hang your turning
tools on the wall toward the tailstock end of the Lathe. Do not lay them on the bench
so that you must reach over the revolving workpiece
to select them,

DANGER
Wear safety gogglesthat comply with ANS Z87.1t968, and a face shield if operation is dusty.
Wear ear plugs or muffs during extended periods
of operation.
FOR
When turning between centers or on the face plate,
always rough-out "out of round" workpieces at
slow speed. Running the Lathe too fast, so that it
vibrates, could cause the workpiece to be thrown
from the Lathe . . . or the turning tool to be
jerked from your hands.
Always revolve the workplace by hand before
turning on the motor, tf the workplece strikes the
tool rest, it could split and be thrown out of the
Lathe.
Do not allow the turning tool to "bite" into the
workpiece which could result in splitting of the
workpiece or the workpiece being thrown from
the Lathe. Always position the tool rest above the
centedine of the Lathe for spindle turning, Do not
apply the turning tool to the workpiece below the
level of the tool rest.
