Abstract: At 1:30 p.m. on June 2, 2005, Employee #1, a warehouse helper with a manufacturer and renter of large tents and party canopies, was using a Delta type 2 drill press (Model Number 70- 200, Serial Number 011142W2082) to bore holes in an aluminum tube for a tent part. As he brushed accumulated chips from a hole he was drilling, his work glove became caught in the drill press.
