    Wow. That's a rough one. I'm kind of surprised the lathe even stalled, must have been in a high gear. Unless it was just spinning and slipping - until it didn't. Just to add to the *GRAPHIC* warning:...

    Well you failed in one respect. I feel totally spammed by all of your posts. Every post seems to be a youtube link to drive up your views off the back of this site.
