under the screw on the handle of the 'pin' with a bit of plastic
sprue tied to the other end of the thread. Now when I use the 'pin'
the dangling thread reminds me to jam the plastic sprue in the
surround of the emergency stop button so I cann't turn on the mill
without remembering to remove the sprue and the 'pin'.
