Toolpost Dial Indicator Part 3: Machining the Top

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

When I designed the part, I wasn’t planning on machining it, so I didn’t worry about designing for efficient CAM operations on my mill. That made it a little bit of a challenge to keep the machining time down to something reasonable.
