What's wrong with this picture?



Taken from "Giant Home Workshop Manual" (Popular Science Publishing 1941).

He's working in a shirt and tie?

... and that tie is really close to wrapping around the work piece and giving him an extremely close-up view of it. :)

Oh yes. The funny thing is that this book has several pictures of men in ties working at the lathe (and at the band saw and table saw for that matter.) I couldn't believe it. (There is no chapter on shop safety-but this was probably before lawsuits existed in their present form.)

Well, it is a short tie sorta...lol.

His head is large compared to his body.

He's wearing a tie that could choke him if it got caught in the machinery, of course...
