A Momentary Lapse of Concentration

MLoRLP01

On the turning away
On the CNC router
And the words we say which others won’t understand
“I don’t believe what I’ve just done
Another bit is now suffering
I’ve mixed up the axis again
And now it is gone”

That moment, 2 seconds after clicking a button, and hearing the tip of the bit hit the wall of the shed.  When you have moved the tool in the Y axis, and not the Z.

And another 1/16″ bit bites the dust (literally, and figuratively).
