    Since we are talking back gears I have a question. On a cut in backgear, is it OK to end the cut by disengaging the backgear lever? It seems like the fastest way to end the cut. It's a reach but I was curious.
    You should never disengage a gear while it is transferring power.

    Thanks, I am glad I asked. I was doing that forbidden, to some, parting tool operation and it occurred to me that if it got weird at the end and I reached for the power switch there would be a few extra rotations since I was in backgear...or more stored energy than I wanted! As it worked out the parting tool is my friend now that I have used it a few times. Not just for my o-ring grooves anymore!
