Using Emery Cloth on Lathes

Emery cloth or abrasive cloth paper has traditionally been used on conventional lathes to achieve the required tolerances in precision work.  The abrasive surface of the cloth polishes or deburrs cylindrical metal parts.  This belt sander attachment removes the need to use abrasive cloth or paper on a conventional lathe.

The Hazard

A high amount of accidents on metalworking lathes are the result of using emery cloth and sandpaper.  A strip of emery cloth is held between both hands and wrapped around the backside of the rotating workpiece.  If the cloth becomes snagged on the workpiece and wrapped around the fingers on the other end, the risk of an injury is high.  Injuries include broken bones, lacerations, and even amputations.
