    Default CNC machined parts thread mill only

    Not sure about this thread yet spents advised it because I was putting info on the SCZ thread, not to many like that thread so all been well this threads a bit better.

    Anyway got my first new parts done yesterday but have bits missing lol the holes, this is test plastic I got from work I don't no what type it is but its 5mm thick big ass chunky Windows.

    Now I'm offering these windows away for free in return I get hole positions, and a test to see if they actually fit correctly I don't have a 5b lol so if you have the means to put holes in the right place on a 5b cage and measure then say you won't erm UK only though.

    I was engraving the front window but needs an engraving tool for plastic, i found the carbide steel bits are no good for plastic lol but these windows have been cut with a plastic carbide cutter as in ground for plastic lol not an actual plastic cutter 😂

    What ya get for nowt just a little feed back




    The engraving that don't turn out good enough

    Programs coming along at a nice steady pace now Paul, a few things gave me a head ache though.

    Plastic test piece? It weights 90g Paul it's going on the baja it would drive like a boat
