What is "deadman control" in teh following sentence:
"All portable reamers shall be provided with a deadman control."
Could you please help me with it?
A portable reamer is a thing like an electrical hand drill. It is also used to work on holes. It is not used for drilling, however; rather it is used to fine-finish the drilled holes.

(1) What a coincidence. This morning I read about how important a deadman control, death switch, etc. is.
(2) Yesterday the driver of a subway train in New York City died while driving his train. Because his hands no longer exerted any pressure on the control lever, the train automatically stopped and no passengers were hurt -- or killed.
Thanx a lot to everybody!
Strange coincidence, ture!
I have grasped the idea of what the "deadman cotrol" is.
