John we call that a free correction. Free because no injury. Correction because now you can learn not to do it that way again.

I'll have to remember that Gerald, got a nice ring to it, free correction. I know what I did, I got too far out on the end of the tool rest and it started bouncing slightly, causing my tool to be not so stable in the cut. I keep meaning to build a tool rest that will span the length of these spindles I am working on, it should be more stable.

Oh yes. Aggravation. Today I had a piece nearly ready for sanding. I was distracted and my gouge dug in. Didn't ruin it, but to do all of what it takes to get a piece where you wanted it and decide to just a touch more. I did the one thing I've found that helps...................walk away and clear my mind. At my age my mind needs cleared.............................where was I going with this?;)

 I find myself doing this also. I think the majority of the people on this site have articulating minds, the wheels are always turning. When we get close to finishing a step in a project we are already thinking of the next move.
