So as not to offend Tweakie with my totally time honored, family tradition of BBQ repair with high grade aluminum foil ...
I replace background with bubbles ....  really wish someone would wash the widows around here ::)

Hey Fixittt,
  I don't know what the finished product should look like, but from my perspective, I'd say you can still use what is already cut!
   Looks good!
    Glenn :)

  How much $ for the new spindle?
Don't assume anything.....it'll make a Manager out of U and Me!

notice that in the females face there is a line,  left side is lighter because it is deeper. 

it cost me $35 to order 10 her bearings.  not to bad, just bad timing.   I used artcam to make the relief.  My desktop cnc machine has a wolfgang engineering spindle  and I used a 1/16th ballnose endmill.  Smallest I had that would cut this material as most of what I do is wax.

Here is one I did a while back in purple wax.  The 15 degree .005 in tip cutters I use for wax I dont think will cut the white plastic.
