    Cheers Clive, been making lots of RC kits that I'm selling on eBay and now making bits for work. Had the idea this morning, drew it and made it by lunch....snapped 2 4mm cutters with a school boy error in not thinking about cutter clearances but apart from that all good. Pleased the boss anyway!

    Below are some RC bits I'm doing for me...

    Hi Neil,

    Nice work there. Often thought about selling kits on ebay but never got round to it!

    With regard to your earlier post - the bottom finish on aluminium pockets is never perfectly smooth to the eye. I think your photos look OK but hard to tell with the light reflections. Can you feel ridges with your fingernail?

    Here are my pockets which I'm pleased with - on a machine which is less stiff than yours:

    Hi Barry,

    I'm drawing up a few more planes at the moment, a 3 CH old timer and a low wing Acrobat. The top one in the picture is based on the ugly stick and I'll eventually have that on eBay but want to build and fly it first!

    The bottom of the pocket is rough, not ridged but rough as if its been either tearing or rubbing it...I think it's just a case of getting the speed and feed correct. That's the first bit of ali cut on the machine so long way to go yet!
