    @Dean Perkins--have you found the minimum speed of 500 rpm to be any problem? Seems pretty fast for sanding or finishing on the lathe. Or drilling a lot of stuff too, for that matter.

    I've spent a few years trying to decide between the Miter Express and the Miter 5000. I've used the Dubby--and it's very good. But--my Incra stuff has been absolutely top-notch.

    I’ve made a few that were okay-ish, but I splurged on the old version of the Jasper 200–nice tool. Don’t use it a ton, but it does exactly what it says.

    I don't know the cause, but $319 divided by $284 is about an 8.5% increase on my calculator. Still large for a year, but not 25%--yet!!

    Dave--it may be helpful if you can figure out how to attach a picture of what fell out. If it's the Morse taper that the chuck attaches to, it could be as simple as cleaning both the male & female...
