[SKILL BUILDER] #2 — OtherMill
This skill builder is also step 1 in my goal of making spring loaded camming devices (SLCD, aka a cam) in this class.
Created two SVG files in illustrator with a basic cam lobe–one for overall cut, one for axle hole
SVG files loaded into Bantam Tools
Adding the aluminum stock to the mill
Missing shots of loading and homing the machine, here it is starting to cut
Over an hour fifteen minutes to go…
Pulled out of the machine, rough edges
Up close after breaking the scrap material off
A few quick passes with a sanding block and it’s smooth enough to handle
Done, for now!
