That is pretty cool Michael!

How are you going to put the slot in the end of them? I'm at that stage with my rockers (no slot yet) but am on a break to work on other things.

OK, Made a jig to hold the rocker arms so they could be machined to the right length and then mill the slot in the end

Good idea so I thought, but not so in practice, they ended up different lengths and the slots didn't come out right either

This is how I set them up, but it didn't work out

So this is how I should have done them in the first place, in the 4th Axis from start to finish




Just break them off and touch up the end with a file
