Somebody mentioned seeing a body being thrown into a woodchipper? That would be an awesome find. We all know down the road someone, somewhere has gotten away with murder thru this method maybe someday someone will actually film it for us?

Can anyone tell me what this machine is used for?
A lathe is used to spin a material very rapidly so it can be trimmed quickly and accurately. It moves very quickly and can be very dangerous to operate if you aren't careful. It's uses in industry, hobby, and general machining are innumerable, albeit a simple machine

here you go:


Commercial Woodchipper Fatality
Larimer County Coroner’s Office
Loveland, CO
Abstract: This paper discusses collecting, sorting, cataloging, and identifying the remains of a person killed in a woodchipper incident. Also, the manner of death is determined to be an accident.
Background
The decedent and one employee were trimming trees on private residential property. The decedent was disposing of cut limbs via a commercial woodchipper; his employee was in an aerial bucket-lift, trimming and dropping limbs. The employee observed that the decedent appeared to be drawn into the feeding mechanism of the woodchipper by a gloved hand. At that time, the employee began a descent and then jumped from the bucket-lift at approximately 10 to 12 feet from the ground. By the time he reached the decedent (approximately 22 feet away), only the decedent’s feet were visible as they were being drawn into the woodchipper. The employee went to the residence and requested that 911 be called.

The employee indicated that the speed had been set at the equivalent of approximately 75 feet per minute. (Given this estimated rate and the decedent’s height, the estimated elapsed time of this incident was less than seven seconds.) Information from Vermeer also supported that a 1" to 2" limb could be stuck or pulled through the machinery mostly intact because of the gap distance between the gears and cutting blades versus the machine itself.

Sorting the Remains: The Ground
Beginning with the remains on the ground between the woodchipper and the product truck and working from those nearest the woodchipper to nearest the product truck, the remains and associated evidence were photographed, collected, cataloged, and sorted by categories into clothing, property and evidence, remains for identification (e.g., DNA, dental, fingerprints), and then remaining body parts. These bags were individually marked and sealed on scene. The area containing remains on the ground measured approximately 68" by 22" at its widest point.
Two fingers (later identified as the right middle and right little fingers), an intact and circumcised penis, a nipple, parts of the heart and spleen, brain matter, pieces of scalp and head hair, and multiple unidentified bone fragments were recovered.
Pieces of clothing were recovered, including pieces of dark denim material, pieces of red and black plaid cotton material, and white cotton material. Personal property that was recovered included pieces of a lip balm product, pieces of currency (later determined to be from a five-dollar bill), and the frame of the right eyeglass lens.

Autopsy
An autopsy revealed the following information:
• The remains had a retrieved weight of 135 pounds and consisted of extensively morselized pieces of tissue and bone.
• Pieces of skin were identifiable as Caucasian.
• Results were negative for alcohol, prescription medications,
over-the-counter medications, and illicit drugs.
• The left thumb and mostly intact tongue were recovered during the autopsy.
• The decedent’s antemortem documented weight was 150 pounds (approximately 90% recovered), accounting
for an estimated 10 pounds of blood (five liters) and unrecovered macerated organs. It was apparent that all recoverable remains were accounted for.

Let It All Bleed Out
When I went to machine production class 1st year of high school, we used these lathes, old Czeckoslovakian ones from the 60's. The teacher told the girls "keep your damn hair away from the wheel while it's spinning!" and "would have told you boys that too but i haven't seen one with long hair since the 70's.." Those were the days :cool:
I still have my long hair.
