    Thank you Sir. Im am prolly 100 miles out from the center which was 7.1 magnitude. It may not sound like a large one but it is. I feel bad for the folks that lost their homes. JR

    I made the outboard tapered spacer a bit short, then spaced like I wanted with bronze thrust washers. Makes tightening easier. Other thing left the draw bar long hanging outside of the hand wheel until I had all the fits right.

    Was gong to cut it flush but left a stub to mount outboard spider for long stock. It slips over the draw tube tightens with Allen screws. 4 more Allenís serve to center stock outboard.

    Use a outboard spider often through the headstock & chucks, even more often through the headstock with 5C collets. Ability to center up long thin flexible rod is important.

    Glad to hear you're OK. Funny that a 6.4 quake can generate a 7.1 aftershock. And yes, 7.1 is not a small quake.

    The picture reminds me of the Loma Prieta quake. We lived in Modesto, about 90 miles northeast of the epicenter. A friend had a fairly large rectangular pool with the long side oriented east-west. The quake generated a "tidal wave" which smashed his sliding glass door. It was "only" a 6.9, killed 63 and injured over 3500.
    It's all mind over matter.
    If you don't mind, it don't matter.
