Well it looks like you are making chips and having fun and hopefully saving some time and increasing accuracy on this project and ones in the future.
I am new to the CNC world and recently acquired a couple of used Seiki 3 Axis CNC mills with Anilam 1100M controls on them. I am having a ton of fun learning how to program these machines.
On some of my first programs I ran them in air (with plenty of Z Axis clearance). Then I cut them in MDF (Wood) and now I am cutting in 6061 T6 aluminum. I am also lucky in that Anilam offers as an option what is called off line software for my controller which allows me to program parts and actually verify the parts on my PC Prior to loading them into the machine and running them.
Keep up the good work and have fun.
