    I've seen so many posts saying I shouldn't stick my hand (or other body parts) into rotating machinery I can't count them but it seems like a reasonably good idea to me.
    Is there any legislation preventing stupid people like me buying power tools and using them however I like?
    I might consider a mincer if a lathe is off limits to me,
    TIA,
    Nick

    No, it's a parody on a post on another forum, there's a long discussion about whether one should undergo formal training before buying a lathe for hobby use ;-)

    Thought that is why they were supposed to be CE marked? Got a link to the other discussion?

    H&S have indeed taken over. I have to go on a training course next week so that I can use a hydraulic jack even though I have been using one for at least 20 years.
    I thought the store man was taking the piss when he refused to issue me one because I wasn't on the list of competent people.

    How the Hell will 2 letters CE stop an idiot from getting is arm ripped out the socket if decides to stick is hand into chuck.? . . . Before you say guards or interlocks the idiot as already by-passed or removed those because he can't see where to stick is fingers.!!

    No letters or HSE can repalce Common sense and here in lies the problem.!! . . . . Leave people alone stop babying them with HS and let them learn common sense. Even that means doing it the hard way.!

    Take a breath and stop misinterpreting humour. We all know that CE marki g is only there to protect the sellers from the users idiocy

    I didn't see any humour in your statement george thought you where just being Anal which happens so often on forums but I'll agree on the CE seller idea.

    I thought C E just meant China Export ;-)

    Back in the day when you got 3 years minimum of metalwork you would get a go at everything from basic bench-work through to turning and milling with all sorts in between - soldering, brazing, sweating, possibly enamelling, forge work - loads of great skills - suitable safety advice would be dispensed with a clip 'round t' ear 'ole to reinforce any ignored advice.

    The excuse that all these skills won't be used in Service-Industry-Britain means that kids are missing out on learning things that could provide brilliant hobbies and might lead some to bigger things,
    It's all a bit sad really.
