    Cat's right. Orange pieces are rubber used as a buffer.

    the unit is a "lever"

    Looks like a tool to press the buttons on a MEC Automate.

    Faster too. Not by much, but enough to sense that the fumbling is gone

    A picture presented by the manufacturer at the product-liability trial as evidence that the plaintiff bypassed well engineered safety features.

    Proof that a 9000H should have 2 foot pedals rather than one

    I think the original intent was to have both your hands on the buttons so you don't have them in the machine under the dies. All is well until somebody looses a digit. When I was working a large factory I seen innovations like this, I also was on the implant medical response team. I was busy.

    Good idea, Don't any of you guys try this. It is too easy. I'll tell you what does happen... As you get up from sitting to fill bottles or boxes, you have gotten used to placing your hand/bracing yourself on the base. And you inadvertantly touch the bar. But you figure it out in about 1/2 a second and get off the bar. Now I switch the machine to off before I get up. That is in the owners manual too.
    Foot pedal coordination is far more difficult than this bar.
