    Clicked Thanks soon as the adjustable chip guard was removed to feature the plunger. Capital idea, for more than one reason.

    That one is as factory fitted to the mill, but is probably worth considering as a refit.

    I keep being told that I need to get some reading glasses for when I’m working, the problem is that now days I’m bigger than I was when I first started out, so what I’m looking at has gotten smaller over the years. That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.
    When I was young and poor I learnt a trade, and after many years of hard work Iím not young anymore.

    Huh. Always thought it was less an eyesight problem, more an issue with arm length.
