yes, very well spotted, I left it there as a test! you pass! hahaha

Only joking. I'm pretty good at removing the key, although I confess I left it twice on there yesterday.
However, I do have this habit where i run my hand through the chuck before starting any work - so no chance ever of being started with a key on it.
The only times I have left it is when I have removed my piece from the chuck, which doesn't bother me too much as there would be reason to start the lathe if there was no material on the chuck.
nonetheless, always good practice to remove it no matter what.

In engineering school back in the fatherland they showed us gruesome pics of long hair caught in the drill press etc. One showed a poor guy whose lathe had the on/off switch down low on the left and as he turned it on the forgotten chuck key punctured the back of his head.

I have a method that works well, the chuck wrench is an extension of your left hand, it never leaves your hand until you put it back down. That usually works well.

Some of them now have a spring around the square and requires you to push it in to use, then the spring would push it off if it was left on. Simple modification for someone who forgets.

Mine is the right hand.
I guess as the switch is straight above the chuck that's why I run my hand on it.
right hand runs over the chuck, then up towards the switch.

A demerit is you lose one point.

That video shows what horseplay leads to. That kid is extremely lucky, that could have been far worse.

I use that video from time to time to reinforce the message that machines have no emotion.

Have done nothing on the bike.
Been faffing about with other stuff, done an oil change on my C10...and a few odd jobs here and there.

and built a frame for my sissy bar jig.
for ages I been meaning to do this. Space is not much and I dont have space for a big table to bend sissy bars, meaning I end up balancing shit on top of a temp table and it's just not safe. so if you can't go horizontal...go vertical.

Built a frame that goes on the vice, which then the jig hangs over and is bolted via 2 bolts so when I apply forces to bend bars it doesn't move.
Might add a couple of gussets and maybe the same type of stick out arms out but going down, but don't think it's necessary, have hung off it and it's solid there.

One demerit equals 50 push ups, you'll get the idea fast!

Finally!! something to update!
after getting through most of other things on my list today I got on with something on the Pan...
after getting the wheel moved slightly, so it sits where it should, was time to work on some fender mounts... nothing special, but done something so that's a start haha



equal on both sides just like my OCD likes haha



and the mounts, still need to weld it up... not sure how I'm going to get my tig in the middle of the 2 plates to weld the inside to the frame though.
need to check if one of my smallest cups can fit in there..





also done a little timelapse for a laugh.
