Although they're not the least-expensive, in all cases I've either been very-satisfied with the products McMaster-Carr sells, or they have graciously taken them back at no cost to me.  And that has happened only rarely in the last 20 years of dealing with them.

Yeah, but a way cover won't show its true colors for a few to several months.  Then when it has failed its really no longer returnable.

Eh... they're pretty generous about things like that.  I'm betting they'd probably guarantee it in normal service for about a year.

I hope its made of some miracle fiber.  Its a lot lighter than I expect.  

I used the machine some the last few days, but using the giant vise was a bit tricky.

Old cars used to have such a hole on the front bumper. For the big starter key Smiley

I had a tractor for nearly two decades (80s and 90s) with a 'big key hole' just like that!  A 1957 Ford 8N, fully-restored, and used almost every day during the warm months (April through September).

I never once had to hand-crank it, though, and glad for it!  There were a LOT of stories circulating about men getting broken arms due to a backfire!

My dad has my grandfathers old 1950s John Deere Model M.  I used it a few times for harvesting grapes and sweet corn.  Don't recall a crank hole.  It always just started. 

For the crank hole on the mill.  Obviously I need to cleanup the bur left by the hole saw, but you can't even see the hole when the doors are closed on the table top enclosure.  I think on the inside to deflect spray I'll probably mount a neoprene or buna rubber flap.  Currently I am using an air ratchet with a short extension to operate the vise, but the plan is to make a speed wheel with a slightly extended single diameter shaft so the flap doesn't hang on it when its pulled out.  I'll mill a close fit hex pocket on the end with a taper for the first 1/4 inch or so of depth.  For now the air ratchet works except that I knock the socket off every other time I use it.
