tink-tink-tink-tink. This is the sound made by a knife that didn't quite make it from the quench to the tempering oven before self-destructing. There goes 5 hours of work.

Damn. Just like that almost imperceptible "tic" your 2-56 tap makes as it
breaks off inside of the part you just spent 6 hours machining. Hate Hate Hate.

Yep, like that feeling when a rusty bolt turns and you *know* it's going to break which will mean an hour or two with extractors that will break in the bolt followed by time on the drill press to redrill and tap the fucking hole.

Never dull.
