Re: Lathes

I've witnessed one incident of a chuck key launched into a cinder block wall where it ended up leaving a nice hole. The wall had several other scars in the vicinity indicating that this was not the first such incident, just one of the "better" ones as it managed to find a spot where it could make a hole.

This was in shop class and the idiot student that left the key in his chuck got a boot in the pants from the instructor. You can't get away with that anymore, but then you can hardly find machine shop classes in high school anymore either.
