Absolutely sick, my friend, just fantastic work. I can not thank you enough for sharing these, just stunning.

Can we see a final pic of the last one with the stone mounted?

Thanks,
Dave

first time i ever cut metal... my nerves were shot.. even tho its only aluminum..

hogged out bulk on my lathe then wrote rest of path to trin and cut concentrically to my own mill. i made a startling discovery.. metal is not wax.. its noisy and its messy...

oh yeah its a new idea for a key for myself for flip+rotary parts.

Neat, Chris, what's the black material for wearing around the neck made of/called?

been making more fixtures...  this one locks up a model after three sided cutting so i can cut away the inner supports.

(note: the hub id off centre.. i screwed up the path but i think you get the idea.)

i tried to use the cut circle wizard in Mach but it seems locked to IPM and inches for size not mm, even tho my mach is set to use mm. ??

i put in 50 as a plunge unit and it shot down to my model at super speed, so im guessing its 50 IPM not 50mm/min?  i have no way to tell from the wizard what the units are.

ended up coding a circle cut so i can trust it.
