    When this thread first appeared I tried to respond to the purpose of this thread...of course it was locked, so I couldn't... duh.

    However the good news is that among all of us newbies and old pros, no one has ever experienced any goofs or blunders.

    Everyone a hi five.:encourage:

    Very easy to do, forget the quill lock with and an endmill it will auger itself right into the work or table, you did an excellent job with a face mill however.

    In my often expressed opinion, one major blunder is creating myriad subforums when a maximum of a half dozen will do the job nicely. . .

    Power up a Bridgie with the drawbar wrench sitting up there- THWACK! Boy that's hard to loosen!
    Crash the carriage of a SB 9 into the chuck and hear the busted off toolholder smack the shop wall 20 yards away.
    Did both when I was a young dumb whipper snapper, lived to tell the tale. My shop teacher Mr. Riddle would have chewed my rear.

    Certain sounds really catch the shop teachers' ears. My dad commented that he could hear the compound tapping a chuck from 100 yards away. Had enough kids do it, he was like Pavlov's dog hitting the master power switch in the shop.
