Safety and Certification

Protective Equipment

  • Safety glasses: Proper safety glasses are required at all times, for anyone within chip throwing distance
  • Ear protection: Not required, but can be loud
  • DO NOT WEAR GLOVES: They can get caught in the mill causing serious injury.


  • High-torque device: Keep hands, arms, and others away from moving parts.
  • Do NOT wear gloves during operation, as they can get caught in the mill
  • No dangly bits: Long sleeves, long hair, loose clothing and jewelry can easily get caught causing serious injury. Long hair must be tied up.
  • Sharp chips: Metal shavings are razor sharp and very hot. Use gloves when cleaning them up (but NOT while the mill is running)
  • Metal parts will likely be hot immediately after milling. Let them cool down.
