Default Thanks to all for everything

Hello all.
You have helped me a lot, much more than I could have hoped for, and I have learned a lot, so thank-you very much. I now know about Muscle Chucks, which I had never heard of before. And that others have experienced the same problem as me. Had I not ordered a new chuck from the UK, I might have gone with the muscle chuck, and may still do so, but I'll try out the new Triton chuck first. I am not even sure it will fit, because my Triton is the old one from before the crash, so we shall see. And yes, I need to go slower with these narrow bits. My insert is the multi-channel one, the one that came with the machine, and not a single slot, but still no go. I tried it again today, feeding the wood so slowly I had to whistle to stop nodding off, but no luck. It's interesting that some of you others also had the problem especially with spiral bits. So - learned a lot. This current project is a set of foot pedals (32) for an organ, and they need a narrow slot in the bottom to fit a spring. Because I had already kitted them out with felt, I couldn't use a circular saw, so I was a bit stressed, but in fact solved the problem by laying the pedals on their side and cutting a slot with a biscuit bit. And as requested I'll go and introduce myself to on the other page. I'm Australian, but currently in Norway. I bought the router gear from the UK to get the half inch gear, the choice of bits, and prices, in the US are so superior to over here. Usually I buy from Price-cutter/Eagle. I've made mostly music-related stuff, like spinet, harps, pedal boards for organs etc.
Thanks and cheers,
