    Turning SAFER

    I have this attached pdf on the wall behind my lathe. More than once I've glanced at it and realized I had forgotten a step.

    Thanks Jeff, I assume you meant for it to be copied. I have already saved it to my desktop and sent a version to be printed and then will send that to the copier to make one for each lathe in the school shop. Thank you.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Jonathan...yes feel free to use it. I don't remember where I saw the first version of this...might have been here years ago. I put mine in one of those plastic sleeves from a 3 ring binder as finish and green wood spews onto it quite a bit...I need to change it out cuz it's looking pretty nasty right now.

    I always post a version of that at the front of every class I teach and during my first teaching demonstration explain what each one means. I believe the SAFER concept originated with Keith Rowley an English turner.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Well my copy was easy to read. It was just a black box. Goes right along with my old age IQ.

    I'm glad the rest of you enjoyed it. I'll play with it some more and see if I can get it.

    Well I finally got it. Thanks.

    Enjoy,

    This is really good.
    I am not an English teacher but when talking about safety it would be better to spell it right.

    Work S.A.F.E.R!
    S -Speed compatible with the size of the wood to be turned?
    A -Aside - Stand out of the “Firing Line”
    F -Fastened - Are all locking handles secured?
    E -Eye Protection - Safety Glasses and Face-shield
    R -ROTATE -The wood freehand to spin freely

    Thanks!

    I'll be hanging it on my wall too. Reading it a dozen times a day and checking the list every time I stop for anything turning green wood has to be a good practice.
