I'm tired of being saved from myself ....

We bought a new drill press recently.  Pretty nice drill press ... even if it did come from Harbor Freight. But one thing that just drove me up the wall was the chuck key.  Apparently somebody sometime left the key in the chuck and got hurt or something.  Because it came with a spring loaded pin in the end of it
 It causes the key to pop out of the chuck whenever you do not push in against the spring.  Sounds like a good idea, but it is a real pain.  Because unless you are putting pressure on it you can't tighten the chuck. But it was a simple fix.
I'm all for safety, but at some point common sense needs to kick in as well.
