    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.
