Simply awesome, Chris, thanks for that.  :)

How do you handle the stamping inside the ring?

at the moment i actually physically stamp it. but with carefull pathing strategies you can cut inside too if you are doing hybrid 3 sided cutting.. ive not bothered so far.. too much mission for something that takes 1 second with a hallmarking stamp

or you can do it easily with a 5th axis ;)  i really want to add one but pathing software makes this prohibitive :(

not entirely sure about this job.. i suspect might be nipple caps of some sort.. on the mill tonight...

edit added WIP pic.. gotta love a ball endmill.. see that surface shine.. and lord alone knows why i have that Z ledge...

always does that on big cut transfers.. think my Z is funky...
