Nah. I don't believe it. This thing'll never be finished. It'll just sit in the shop and laugh at you every time you walk past and whisper, 'pssst...C'mon Mike, just one more modification, just one more adjustment. You know you want to...' ;):P

Just kidding. Bet you're itching to finally mill something proper with it by now.

Fantastic Mike! She looks as overbuilt as she needs to be. When are you making first chips with test runs, such as circles, etc? Drop us a video....

I think the dust shoe was a good test so far. :)  I will get more though.

Started on the lap steel today. :) The last photo is a closeup of the side cuts. This was at 0.250" DOC per pass, 1/2" endmill. I would say my time squaring and tramming paid off. No sand paper was used before this picture and that is also 2 pieces of walnut glued up, both surfaced first on the cnc before glueup. As you can see no step marks, no chatter marks. just nice clean milling.

Having some issues with my dust shoe. My dust collector moves a lot of air and keeps sucking the skirt up into it allowing the chips to fly out. Time for a redesign or new skirt material to eliminate that problem. :)

See vid for problem. It sucks the brush up obstructing the airflow.
