Thank you! The carbon lay up pics are fascinating.

I'm slightly surprised to see the open plan office divided into cubicles, I though that only happened on Dilbert cartoons.

Eye protection anyone?
More could have been done.

It's not spinning in the shot - he might have removed the cover ;)

If you follow the OP link you'll see that these machines are housed in a cabinet. The operator above has opened the cabinet to set up the next blank that is going to be machined. You can see the drill bit has moved to a park position in the top left of the picture.

I am surprised he isn't wearing gloves to clear away all that swarf.

In general you never wear gloves when working with spinning machines but thats not the point here because they are fully closed.
The issue with gloves is they soak in with the cooling fluid and become unpleasant. The turning is usually blown away with pressurised air.
