I'd be willing to bet that over the years, more than just a few workers got their fingers wrapped!!

Wow..  that's a pretty impressive video, and a great advertisement for Lectric Limited!   They are much more automated than I had previously thought, although I've generally heard good things about their company and product(s)...

No kidding about the fingers! That machine really moves! Really neat video though to see how it was originally done.

If they still made the machine, it would be covered in warning labels...

I recognize that GREEN Potter-Rayfield Machine!
We use one at work to rewind DC motors for the Navy Submarine Fleet, Never seen the conveyor, we depend on the skill of the trade person. Takes a lot of practice and much more un-friendly dacron-glass tapes.
Yes our OSHA reps HATE this machine!

Thanks for posting
