We were all in electronics and none of us were supposed to wear rings for that very reason and also because they considered them an electrocution hazard.

To this day I do not wear rings or any other jewelry for that matter.
Similar story except he was jumping down from sitting on a stack of pallets. Hooked a nail and degloved finger.

I always wear mine. I'm married and I'm supposed to I guess. Side benefit, it keeps the cougars away.

Back in the 70s my good bud got his ring caught on a board going thru the plainer. We never did find his finger, but we gave his ring back.
