    I modified spanners to make sure the collet was tightened properly in the mill spindle, they are 12" long. If you loosen the collet when it is in the mill, always put a wad of rag underneath, as the cutter is likely to drop out and be damaged when it hits the bed.

      Duly noted. Can't wait to break this in.

        ooh, very nice! As a follow up to old mart's advice, there's usually a 2 step loosening with my ER collet chuck and ball bearing nut. First bit gets the nut moving, then the 2nd bit of loosening loosens the collet enough to release the tool. I've gotten in the habit of loosening the nut a little bit (big effort), put my finger on a non cutting part of the cutter and then loosen the nut a bit more. That stops the tools falling out unintentionally.
