Stuff happens Bob. All you can do is regroup and press on. Is the blank steel or brass?

Steel Bill.  I like to torture myself. 

I'm just cleaning the shop now.  I'm about to put some Heavy Metal on the stereo and get "my head back in the game".

Well Bob, brass could have grabbed too with the same result. Heavy metal huh? That should clear the cobwebs out  :Lol:

Even if it was plastic, it would have been a screwed part Bill.  The flanks were finished  and I was begining to rough out the .281 base circle.  I didn't go far enough back in Y when I went to index 5 degrees causing the crash.  I let my concentration slip.

The good news is that I only knocked the tram out .002.  I took the time to go over the gibs and tighten them up.  Now I just have to make sure that the collets didn't get hurt.

Wow, sorry about that Bob.   :(
I can certainly sympathize with this sort of set back.  Glad it wasn't any more serious!

Thanks Kim.  It's just a bump in the road.
