I Forge Iron

You know it's Monday when...

Recommended Posts

A drill chuck decides to drop off it's taper in the middle of a run... and you have your back turned. :rolleyes:
Luckily, I'm just making a bunch of parts out of G-10. (fibreglass, essentially) The next tool, which was a carbide centerdrill, hit the chuck off-center, driving it the rest of the way through the part, before pushing it out of the way.

A strange occurance, so I thought I'd grab a picture. :D

Well, it ruined the part, but that was no loss, this was the first half of the setup, where the 'part' was still just a raw block of G-10, a fibreglass-like material. The machine pictured is one of the Haas VF-3's that I run most often at work.
