Just a heads up on how not to clamp your work down.

toe clamps are available, unfortunately, those clamps are not toe clamps

I was expecting it to come all the way out and go flying.

I am quite surprised that it did not. Luckily the operator shut it down before it got ugly.

It might have gone a little better if instead of taking a full cut with auto feed he tried a test cut and fed manually. I realize that an experienced guy might not need to, but the video shows that he's not all that experienced.

Also, wearing a watch.

When he hit the auto feed I thought, here it goes, that block is going to shoot right at the operator.

Maybe. Pretty hairy forearm for a woman. Take a look at about the 0:20 mark.

Doesn't really matter though, I guess.

They have long nails, clean hands, and no clue how to operate a machine tool. :)
Okay, run the video again. The person in the video has a funny build for a woman. Nope, fingernails not clean either.

Who cares! Nothing happened! However, clean fingernails are a giveaway, obviously a female or a ----- male with all too clean habits.

The song in the background is appropriate "Livin' on a Prayer"
