An assembler working for Minitec Corporation was operating an automatic riveter machine, placing circuit breakers onto a conveyer belt feeding into the riveter. In doing so, one of the circuit breakers fell onto a steel mounting plate which houses a 115-volt drive motor with a 3.5 inch long shaft and two set-screws protruding 0.25 inch from the shaft. When the employee reached to pick up the dropped circuit breaker, one of the set-screws caught the ring on her pinky finger, and amputated her finger. She was hospitalized for the amputation.
