    My father favored "This is a Mickey Mouse program" which recently I have been using as "just another Walt Disney production"

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency, on my part...;)

    Get it as tight as it will go, then give it two more turns.

    I had an arm break off of a Snap-On brake cylinder hone back in the early 1970's. I showed it to the Snap-On guy when he came around the next time. He took one look at it and said "It broke, lifetime must be over".

    Tighten it until it gets loose, then back it out 1/2 a turn.

    Tight is tight, too tight is broke.
