You keep on making some very nice part - admittedly with some tools most of us can only dream of - but still, a very nice master rod for sure   :cheers:

I've actually never seen a saw quite like that one.   That's pretty cool!...


Works well too

Thx guys, i'm very lucky to have access to those nice cnc.

It's a 5 axis mill, so tools are usually very long to be able to clear the table/vise in every positions.

I must admit that having a 4 axis Tormach is a blessing. I am able to do many things I wouldn't otherwise be able to.

I do it 3 axis, 2 setups, most of the time. I can do 5 axis, 1 setup, but it take longer tools, you need a bigger blank, more vibrations etc...

I'm working on the crank, so i'll give you a nice cnc show with the mill/turn passing the part from one chuck to another.

Cool! What are we looking at - the 2 idler gears just loose but with ID sized for bronze bushing?
What material & will you harden?
Is the plan to also EDM cut the cam internal (ring) gear too?
What does your boss think you are actually working on? HaHa

Again, sorry for my lack of explaination, i'll get  use to it ;-)

The 2 gears (4140, not hardened ) were made on the wire edm, then i press fitted the bronze bushing. Next one will be hardened prior to edm.

Yes, the cam internal gear is the next one.

I'm paid to do this stuff, i'm a teacher, and i will use this project for my cad/cam class next fall ;-)
