Last Thursday evening, Mike & I finished the backplate for the four jaw chuck, and when I got back from Toronto yesterday, I had just enough time before dance rehearsal to get it mounted up on the spindle. At first glance, it looks pretty good – the runout on the side of the chuck is around 0.003″ (I haven’t checked the faceplate runout). More experiments soon.

Toronto was a blast – Steven & Virginie were as good as ever and I had a great time getting to know some of the dancers up there better. I wasn’t super-impressed by the city itself, but it also wasn’t bad, by any means (nor did I have tons of time to explore). The weather was pretty similar to Boston, and I had a nice time wandering around downtown Toronto on Friday. In short, I’d go back, especially if something fun was happening again.
