On September 22, 2009, Employee #1, an engineer with a company that designs, sells, and rents tools, was checking the performance on a newly-designed and manufactured prototype CNC woodworking router. After the machine had performed its programmed task, he used a shop vacuum to remove sawdust from the area of operation to see if the machine was making clean cuts. When the vacuum hose contacted the rotating router blade, Employee #1's right middle finger was pulled into the blade and amputated.
