    The only reason I know of to not leave a tool in the spindle, is that if it was running long enough to get hot, the tool can get shrunk in as it cools down, making it difficult to change out.

    Michael,

    First of all, I watched your video's, and checked out your website. Stunning work. I'm capable of making a half decent 2x4 by comparison.
