A tad annoying

All I wanted to do was drill and tap 4 holes in the top plate of the mini-WASP array to take a dovetail fitting that will hold an Orion finder/guider scope.  4 holes drilled, three tapped when the tap broke in the 4th hole – never managed to do that before.  Got the tap out – no bother, it was most of the way through, so I’ll just put an M4 screw in and finish the job off.  Turned the head completely off the screw with virtually no force – never done that before either.  Just as well it will do fine with three screws, I’ll drill the broken screw out another year 🙁
