Cutting tool fractured and left an artifact in the bottom of the dimples.

NICE! I have had to go back and re-cut the frontstrap before with mine. Pucker factor is always high and even higher when redoing the pattern already laid out.

Well done.

but...but...you're Chris James, b....

Seriously, it's never fun to chase an existing set of cuts after a screwup, since just one wrong move could spell DOOOOOOOM.

I think it was Bob Rodgers that suggested putting a trash can next to your milling machine when doing a job like that. It helps remind you of the outcome if you loose your focus!

Well said! Sums it up damn perfectly.

I would think that lining everything back up to a punctilious degree of accuracy, would be very challenging and leave very little room for error. Very skillful indeed!

Chuck, how high is the ladder you use when you keep setting that bar higher? Very nice work!

I was wandering the same thing: Is this mill under CNC control, or are the coordinates for each dimple mapped out first in CAD and then sunk manually using the DRO?

guys.....sorry if I'm not forthcoming about my process.
I don't have a CNC mill, each cut is made via conventional
positioning.

Yes, it takes time and attention.

I've spent a lot of time developing fixtures and mathematical equations.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

My goal wiff this thread was to have illustrations of
the work involved in a custom build.

I KNEW you were a math freak!!! Just a hunch; but I had this premonition. So you do everything by hand, so to speak.

I completely appreciate your intention of wanting to show pictures, rather than sharing the intricacies of the processes.

You do amazing work, Chuck. All we can ask for, is that you keep it coming.
