45??

Somewhere I have a lost of Murphy's laws of combat that runs to well over 100 items - my favourites being "A sucking chest wound is nature's way of suggesting you might slow down a bit" and "The deadliest weapon available to your enemy is your own second Lt when he has a map and a compass", and possibly "All firefights take place at night, in the rain at the intersection of four map sheets".

But I also like Murphy's law of Economics: "To economists the real world is invariably a special case", and Murphy's law of Photography:"The best pictures are always lost when someone opens the door of the darkroom and all of the dark leaks out".

Murphy has a lot on his conscience - 45 Laws, and not one of them with a positive outcome  :censored: :ROFL: :lolb: :ROFL:

All firefights take place at night, in the rain at the intersection of four map sheets". :ROFL:

Hi folks  ...  i was using the mill on Thursday,  running well had set up the HP cylinder for doing the valve spindle holes bored them 1/8''...( drill reamer) Sort of found its way into my tool kit...then opened to 1/4''they finish at 3/8'' ,If I have read the drawing correctly.
Murphy (bless his heart) is becoming a right little SOD...the lead screw drive is ti ghtening up as the head is nearing the top of vertical axis ...a little further adjustment with a club hammer will  do the trick,
