    Which part?

    The first side was about 3 hours. I could do a few minute video of the part you want to see but 3 hours would be boring to most people.

    I'm interested in the type of CNC mill that you have, is it a home made conversion or a dedicated CNC?

    It's not a conversation. I built the machine with a compound drilling table and fabricated the rest with eBay purchases. The machine is pretty ugly but it makes pretty good parts. I'll see if I can find the thread that shows what I did.

    Thanks for the link, I'm certainly considering making a CNC mill in the future.

    Any part works for me! :D
    Maybe 5 minutes or so ... of several of the larger parts where lots of chips go flying everywhere.

    Your stills look great too ... so don't stop those.

    Well I have all 9 programs complete, debugged, optimized, and ready to go. There are some unavoidable things I will have to live with but I think the finished product will be nice with a little hand work to smooth out the spots where the programs overlap. All the little "bad" things you see have been addressed and with a good setup I should be able to minimize the rest of the tool marks. The next one should be a big improvment over what you see here.
