Not properly quoting the post you are responding to, it isn't offset by '>'
or another generally accepted character.
Note, just pointing it out, in my opinion your knowledge of the subject
(woodworking) offsets this deficiency.
The system will be down for 10 days for preventive maintenance.
Let me try to explain the major flaw in your logic. You said in an
earlier post "However if it cannot withstand without damage any force
that the motor can produce then it is a poorly designed piece of
With that mindset automotive engineers had to have known that there
would be an occasional accident with their products. Of course they
knew this. Then, by your logic they should have designed the cars,
should an accident occur, to need no repairs, right? Therefore, if
what you said had even the slightest bit of credibility you should be
able to explain the existence of automotive body shops.
Please enlighten all of us as to why there are automotive body shops
or any other repair facility for anything. According to you, nothing
Our Constitution needs to be used less as a shield

Nope, not an analogous situation.
But I'll bet you're a real good lawyer because it's the sort of argument
that one would come up with to get his bumbling incompetent of a client off
the hook because his POS tool self-destructs.

After graduating from Universal Technical Institute in 1972, I got a
job at the local Chebby dealership. Most of my time was supposed to
be spent doing those fabulous lube and oil changes you hear about.
Instead, I spend most of that (short) year doing motor mount
campaigns. It seems that if one did what you suggest, the motor mount
would shear off and floor the accelerator, much like the dangerous new
Toyotas with their ~attack~ floor mats. the Chebby fix was a new pair
of motor mounts and a pair of cables between the frame and engine
block. The Toyota interim fix is to remove the ~attack~ floor mat.
Then there were the deadly Ford Pintos, which would explode upon
simple impact of a two ton truck barreling along at 65mph and rear
ending them squarely. The fix (which I also installed at a dealership,
but Ford this time) was a 1/8" nylon plate which went under the gas
tank straps to allow the differential bolts to slide past (instead of
puncturing) the tank during a catastrophic collision.
And there were the Chebby pickups whose gas tanks would explode into
flame if you t-boned 'em at freeway speeds (and they had a special
explosive package installed by the filming crew.)
Those damned engineers, anyway... ;)
P.S: This is a fun thread!
I drive way too fast to worry about my cholesterol.

I said that I thought that we were talking about someone using the wrong
blade on a tool, which would possibly cause undue stress.

Ah, but you forget that the marketing and bean counter types are also
involved. Either one easily negates any sane and/or valid engineering
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas
to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label
of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem
important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.

That comment reminds me of the short little story my college physics
professor told us.
The once was a wagon with no weakest points. One day it disintegrated.
I have never ever ever ever seen any thing build close to that wagon.
