SAFETY FIXTURE ON LATHE

BACKGROUND

The present invention relates generally to a lathe and more particularly to safety fixture in the lathe.

Generally, there is high risk to person working on a machine tool, such as, a lathe. The risk is due to involvement of human contact with rotational shaft on the lathe.

It would be desirable to have an efficient technique to avoid risk of human contact with the rotational shaft on the lathe.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The present invention proposes a technique to avoid risk of human contact with a rotational shaft on the lathe. The technique includes a safety fixture, such as an abrasive paper, that simulates hand behavior. Also, the safety fixture regulates strength that is applied to the shaft through a spring.

The invention described herein provides safety to a person working on lathe by avoiding any human contact with the rotational shaft on the lathe.
