This is the video of the actual machining of the AR-180B shaft. This is the first op in making this part. From here it will nest go to the mill to have the various flats, slots and holes drilled. Now on to the first op.

With the first op complete the next step is to write and set up forĀ  milling the part.

    Is there a reason you didn’t turn the whole selector as one piece and then mill the head down to its final shape?

    Yes the size of the stock would have been much larger and more expensive. It would also have been more difficult to machine the flats later.
