Rather than corrupt this thread any further, I've created a new one in the 'Off Topic' section.I agree. Marble rolling pins are for the aesthetically aware And laminated dough enthusiasts. They are really only good as a show piece and making puff pastry, as you can cool the marble first. And they are really heavy, and if you drop on ceramic floor or marble countertop, they just got more expensive!
Glad you weren't hurt - it's frightening how quickly these things can happen. Worst one for me so far is a steel rule falling onto the chuck off the headstock tray. It ended up embedded in a sheet of ply at the other end of the workshop. It would have been an A&E job if I'd been in the way.It didn't hit me but it was worrying enough to ensure that since then I don't use a Jacob's chuck in the headstock without a drawbar.
Not actually launched, it just fell off the taper! Drill chuck tapers as suggested really aren’t designed to take side loads.You've obviously not had a Jacob's chuck on an MT2 launch itself at you.
