Spline cutter

Now that the spindle was in place, it was time to install the springs and depth stop assembly.
Generally a drill press has a "watchspring" arrangement to hold the quill up, but this machine had
a pair of extension springs attached to an aluminum clamp, which in turn attached to the quill.
Not sure why they went that route, but it works, and it provides a place to mount
the depth-stop screw assembly.
