Just returning from visiting dad in hospital,turns out losing his finger is least of his problems as the doctors have discovered two broken vertebrae in his back and he will be in a brace for at least three months.He is bruised from his fingers to his neck,but he has a good prognosis.For those wondering he was operating a 20 foot fatwu engine lathe that is 50-60 years old.Thank you for your prayers as it is very stressful for mom who thinks the world of my father.

He's lucky it pulled his shirt off. Our company had a fatality several years ago because the lathe man's shirt wound up in extra stock protruding from head stock and suffocated him. although he was alone.

I hope his recovery goes well. Many years ago when I walked into Federal Mogul in Lake City, I saw a bunch of people with missing fingers and the stories they would tell about accidents made sure I didn't wear any rings or loose clothing. I did get to see a person get his middle two fingers pulled out of their sockets one day and that was enough.
Personally I almost got clamped by a fixture one day , I was lucky it only had 5 psi of pressure and it was small so it only caught me by suprise.
Hope he doesn't get too depressed why waiting and it will be hard waiting but he needs to take it slow and don't do any more damage to his back.
