    Kind of hard to hold .0001" flat and parallel when milling.
    That's why I said "after" heat treat. Assuming grind stock is left, to grind within .0001" flat and parallel as a finish operation. Milling is nothing but a roughing operation. One that imparts stresses into the material you're working with, that shows more after heat treat.

    This is the part where aesthetics and personal expressions of artistry come in. If you were making one for me, I'd want some shaping but I am a minimalist so less is better.

    What you have here is pretty cool.

    Thank you. The Possibilities are endless. But I'm limited to what I have machine wise. Pretty much on a manual mill for the most part. Keeping it faily simple and quick machining for this one. Thought about dressing radius on the grinder, for other features but I'm being kind of lazy. More of an experiment than anything haha.

    I was looking at lonewolfs stuff today. They have some very impressive designs. I'm sure they're running multi axis machines tho.

    Hopefully one day I'll have my own fancy equipment to play with

    Kinda...

    Thinking with what I have access to I'm going to try and sink it.

    issue is make the electrode. Everything would have to be running concentric. Meaning the square needs to be dead center of the electrode. With a round shank I could center find the hole. But the orientation has to be correct too.

    Going to be one of those deals where I make the electrode in the holder and never take it out until the process is done.

    Here's a rough idea on the electrode. This is definitely subject to change as the build moves along lol
