You were fresh out of .02" end mills? :lolb: When they get down to that size you have to look twice at the end of the cycle to see if your cutter is still there!

I have the open pattern one in front of the Southbend, but chairs won't go over it.     However I got these today, and they'll go from the Aciera, past the Clausing and the watchmakers bench and down the isle to the edge of the lathe mat.     So  I think the office chair can stay.   I like to roll back and forth from the bench to the Aciera, as the Aciera is really made to be run while sitting for the most part.
