When he released the foot pedal, the ram came down and caught his left index finger in the point of operation between the upper and lower dies. Employee #1 and his employer agreed that company training had advised the use of 10 in. screwdriver stock in addition to the operator's hands. The full-revolution clutch machine did not have point of operation guarding or an anti-repeat device.
