Test piece for an X3 mill
« on: October 07, 2007, 08:28:30 PM »
Loco wheel cut in EN8 steel about 3" diameter



Two cutters, 6mm to block out and 3mm to cut the spokes. 12 minutes and 23 minutes for each operation,
Could go faster but wanted to save the cutters.

Good job John. I hope you will keep the pics coming of the whole project. You got any more pics for now?

Brett,
It's not a project unless you call a unicycle Stephensons Rocket a project.

It's just one of the test pieces we run on the X3's before shipping to a customer. It's not even for a model as it was just drew up in CAD to 'look' right

Cool! Your CNC can cut steel faster than mine can cut wood! Great project.
