    This is why we have safety bars on presses!

    Turn the machine off before you go under. No pinhole is worth it.

    The guy should have hit his foot switch if it had a doublehit function (second tap returns the head to up rest.)

    I doubt he was actually hurt. That's happened to me twice and on a much larger stronger press. The first time I was fully under the screen. I guess my foot must have hit the print pedal. The press trying to print me, bouncing my head back and forth between the screen and the vacuum bed. "Hit...(smash)...the...(smash)...safe(smash)...ty( smash)" But the guy working with me that day had just started 2 hours earlier and had no idea where the safety was. I was able to reach out and hit the safety myself. Now I start any new recruit with, "This is the safety." The second time this happened to me two of us were under the press and a fellow printer that he'd scare us by stepping on the vacuum pedal with us underneath, but he stepped on the print pedal instead. Both of our heads popped through the screen covered in ink while the screen carriage smash into out backs. That hurt a little. But I was more mad at having to reshoot the screen.

    What a jokester!
    Did you return the joke by showing him how funny it is to eat gruel through a straw for six months, while his jaw grew back together?
