Abstract: Employees #1 and #2 were trying to remove a 3 1/2 in. spade drill from the chuck of a radial drill press, using an 8 in. spanner wrench with a 5 ft cheater pipe attached. The drill press was a Csepel, type RFH100/3000, #73068, made in Hungary. Employee #1 contacted the start button of the drill press, which caused the spindle to start rotating. Employee #1 was struck in the side by the spanner wrench and Employee #2 fell over a small table while trying to avoid being struck. Both employees sustained contusions, Employee #1 to the abdomen and Employee #2 to the chest area. Employee #1 died.
