    Default OT Funny Machine Plascards

    Not sure if this has been done before but I always get a chuckle out of these every time I see them and thought it might be fun to see some others. It never seems to get old. I have mostly old Japanese Iron and a little Taiwanese iron so the Jinglish/Chinglish is strong in my shop.

    I'll start with my favorite.
    Do not operate without close the door

    on edit: I'm not much better being I apparently can't spell PLACARD in the title!

    This is a porcelain sign above each CO2 extinguisher in the place I used to work:

    We used solvent solutions of polymers, commonly referred to as dope, in the manufacturing operation. I believe the term was derived from airplane dope, as at the time similar chemicals were used in both.

    We had some good hand written ones. Above the squirrel cage on the drive motor and belts for an ancient 48" lathe: "Live animals inside"

    Over the last fifty-some years, the one that begins "das machine ist nicht fur gefingerpoken" has amused me.

    For my laser welder, I found a caution yellow sign, with red thunderbolts, that says "DO NOT LOOK AT LASER WITH REMAINING EYE!"

    My machinist instructor also had a rule about one person at a time operating a machine, It went back to two guys on a horizontal where one was in front and one at the end of the table. It just happened that the end-of-table guy was straddling the handle when his buddy engaged the rapid traverse.

    I don't have a pic, but in high school we had a field trip to Argon National Laboratory. You know how long ago that was because such things were still possible. They gave everyone film badges to be collected on exit and everything seemed pretty well thought out and routine. Until we got to one chalkboard notice "Strong possibility of total sterility!" Kind of wakes you up out of routine.

    Hi Everyone, This sticker is on the Bridgeport in our shop. It was alluded to in a previous post. I have no idea where it came from or who stuck it on there, but it is funny.

    A friend of mine had a sticker on the emergency stop button on a cnc lathe that said "Oh Shit! Too Late!"

    My dad had one in his basement shop.
    You can get used to wearing safety glasses. It is harder to get used to a glass eye.
    I think he printed it when he worked for a printing company.

    Away OT, Bill, but years ago when I was still building life-size arcade fortune tellers, I went shopping for glass eyes. I found an old oculist who had an ancient velvet tray full--144 glass eyes. I quickly discovered that you can't find a matching pair because---wait for it---nobody needs TWO glass eyes. I also found that staring at a tray of 144 eyes turns your stomach in 30 seconds.
