Saturday update

I am a little behind just coming back from a 10 day trip through the mid west states. So today was a work day in the shop. The major projects right now are finishing all the parts for the VG1-5, you know the hole that needs to be drilled or the slot that needs to be cut, and the fluting machine for the barrels on the VG1-5. When we last left the back plate on the cnc mill I had just finished the hole for the hold down and alignment bolts.

Just so you don’t think that I goofed off all day to get to the point that I am going to show you in the video I spent 9 hours on this. Now this includes writing the cam program as well.

This is the final product as of Saturday evening when I stopped working.DSC_2578s
