lidl have lathes in stock again.
i learned of a new way of holding the tool, simply from the packaging.
i think that is a 'i'm going to stand as physically far away from this POS machine as i can' grip.
I remember tackling Lidl or Alldi, cant remember which, over a similar safety aspect pictured in a catalogue.
I pointed out a long list of accidents waiting to happen, should some new tool owner adopt a working stance same as their catalogue.
Their excuse was, " its only a model, and the machine was not turned on ". I blew a major gasket and suggested that selling woodworking machines requires a picture of a competent user , using it.
My protestations fell on deaf ears, maybe an e mail to Health and safety in Ireland. Mmmmm
