First of all, thank you to all who offered their input on my ribboning
problem.  The advice and counsel was very much appreciated and I looked
into every solution - so my warm fuzzy thanks!


I did finally figure out what was going on.  Despite the high mileage
vehicle and the moon phases, as I was disassembling it for its usual
Friday Cleaning and Putting Away for the Weekend, I discovered that I
had somehow earlier this week bumped the KNIFE HOLDER against the chuck,
giving me a tiny indention at each side of that part in the center of
the knife holder that... well, I'm sure it has a name but I don't know
what it is.  I could not see these dents until I took off that little
unnamed part to clean it and there they were!  I always have a new knife
holder squirreled away, so I am positive that will solve the problems I
was anticipating on Monday!  My only unpleasant anticipation for Monday
is telling The Boss I need a new knife holder... gulp!  Wish I could
blame this on another tech, but I am IT!  Rats and mice!  Too bad
there's not some entrepreneur out there that can machine out those
little denty things, thereby saving about $650 for a new one!


By the way, JTT recommended an alcoholic tincture applied to the
technician to solve the problem.... Darn! I'm out of it!
