[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…

It’s done!

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!
