    Hi guys,

    Well I've been working hard on getting a website set up so I haven't been doing much machining lately. Hopefully that is about to change because the website is finally done for now and you can go there to follow my blog posts, see new machining videos (if you are not already subscribed to my Youtube channel), and brainstorm with on product development. It also has a store for anyone interested in supporting us and buying some of the really cool things I make. I'm totally new to web stuff so if I am doing something wrong or there is a problem with the site please leave me some feedback or feel free to also leave comments in the blog.

    I hope you all enjoyed the titanium dice making videos, they were so cool that I decided they need their own name. I call them the "Luxors". Bob Warfield of the CNC Cookbook and the ubiquitous GWizard calculator wrote an article about the making of the Luxors and I've linked to it on my blog. Also Hackaday published my submission to a contest where I was trying to win some money last year, as an article. I didn't know it was going to be published and I didn't win for technical reasons but it seems to have garnered some attention and I hope it helps others who are having a hard time with their endeavors to know that they aren't the only ones. I've also linked this article on my blog as well.

    The website is warmachinellc.com



    Anyway the next project that I've started working on (or I should say started working on again from a long hiatus) is an AR15 component I invented and provisionally patented in 2006-2007ish. I had a few prototypes made by another machine shop but the cost was borderline prohibitive and the only shop willing to make it decided it was too hard to make and not worth their time. That is what ultimately landed me here. I did a little machining on it when I first got the Mikini but decided I couldn't afford to keep breaking endmills with the spindle problems it had. Now that the spindle problems are completely gone it's about time to bring this thing full circle. I've spent the past couple of days brainstorming fixture ideas as I've decided the previous fixture I made was not going to be good enough. I will detail all of these things on my blog soon and hopefully some of you fine folks can help me come up with a better mousetrap to fixture this thing.

    Hey guys,
    I finally got around to working on the gasblock again, here is the latest video. You can read more about my methodology with the fixturing in the blog on my website: Did I mention this new motor is sweet?
