    Hi all,

    Really appreciate all the support from many of you and I would not let this project stand alone.
    I made some analysis and testings and I found a good solution, as the machine is different from a regular CNC Lol.
    Would not let you miss the result of the top face CNC milling:

    Way to go Laurent! Now you got to work on surface finish and a jig to locate it so you can do the other side.

    You're moving the right direction!

    Thanks JWCNC1911. I already created a jig it with 4 pins ( on my channel it is the part #3 of the propeller milling) and did the back side. Will post the video next week.
    Regarding the surface finish, I did not have received the proper end mill at time and use a too small one.

    Thanks canadianhorsepower. I started with PyCAM (free soft) but the second layer failed and crash the end mill.
    So I gone with CUT 3D from Vectric ( commercial) but very simple.
