You know those clamps for the vice I was so pleased about fitting?
Well, they slipped out while milling metal due to all the vibrations during helixing.
This just after I’d spent all afternoon compensating for the rotational position of the vice to withing 0.04mm across 50mm of its width by probing a piece of metal in the jaws wrapped in a piece of wax paper to electrically isolate it from the vice.
Bog! That’s ruined my day.
And the weekend is going to be rubbish, waiting in a tiny cold tent in Yorkshire for the fog to clear.
