Oops, didn't notice this was already pasted here; http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/showthread.php?t=45065 . I don't come here any more unless I've got something really interesting to contribute; in this case how stupid people can be with tools ...

Dunnow, but it would be cool if there was a program for hobbyists to trade in their small machine tools for the larger ones at the colleges; everyone wins! The kids won't have powerful enough machines to hurt themselves, and the hobbyists will have the heavy tools needed to produce spectacular works!
