Although turning is considered to be a relatively safe pursuit, it is not free of danger. Getting your fingers pinched between a spinning blank and a tool rest is only one hazard. Most turning accidents can be attributed to mounting a blank on the lathe improperly, or using inappropriate speed or tool technique. Carefully center a blank on the spindle and check that you are using the proper speed for the job before you start turning. The speed must be compatible with the size and weight of the workpiece; Finally, never use a cutting tool for something it was not designed to do, and make sure your tools are sharp.
