Milling aluminium shim on the MTM snap

So I tried milling some aluminium shim on the mtm snap into little legos a while back. As Vladimir would say, not totally shit. Actually it is kind of bad, but better than I expected from a $400 mill.


Stereomicroscope yeah! That’s a penny on the side.

To keep things chill, I built a little mastic tape dam to hold coolant in around the stock. It was milled with a 1/64th 2fl upcut end mill. Since then I’ve moved on to a Hass, but I’m currently in India and missing the Hass, so I guess updates on that in a few weeks. is by nadya peek. she'd love to hear from you.
