Itchy gantry motor end – failure 1

A billet of metal with a hole cut out, and a large milled area non-central to the holeI grabbed the details for the nema 17 motor, and built a lay-out in inkscape, and then set out to mill it. It was my first time trying to use the circular vice at makespace – I stupidly failed to work out that something that had the mill directly over it might not actually be centred on the circular vice. As that was the bit that was travelling, the resulting circle was wrong and horrible. And, because I was unlucky with the direction I chose, it was wrong and horrible and too big. I stopped halfway through and tidied up.

When tidying up I managed to get a bit of swarf in my cleavage. This was not as bad as crisps usually are.
