Since you guys seem to like the machine pics, today we will be posting up the last as we kick into the last operations. Here is the start. This was the last op we needed on the grip, the rear panel. Unfortunately the mills went down right when we were at this point. Here you go:

We felt it would help make the seam in the body almost un-noticeable, something we felt might have been a cosmetic issue for some.

Ah - other way around. There are actually three parts there. The Body Top, Body Bottom, and the front plug. All are machined together so they have a fairly seem-less fit. :)

Since we left this off on machining, here is the final operation series of the gun. Everything else is done, just doing the surface body milling. And here is the first 10 minutes with the large ball end:

They are using mastercam, but did just get an upgraded version. I also did things like make the radiusing larger then 6mm over most of it, (10 and 12mm at some point) so we can use a large tool to clean it up easy. I did have him try some different tool strategies also, so the end result will need far less clean up. 


Same machines, same machinists but forethought on the CAD and working with them produces much different results.
