    Hey that's a phrase I use!

    Anyway, looking good. What's the finish like on the edges of the aluminum plate you just machined?

    P.S. Strictly speaking aren't they F-clamps not G-clamps...

    Chris did you leave material for a finish pass ?

    Did you climb or conventional mill the parts ?

    Hi Chris

    You could improve your finish greatly by leaving a small amount for climb milling. Cutters can wander when roughing so you need to leave enough that everything cleans up.

    Trial and error plus experience, all things that take time to learn.

    So it's worth spending some time to learn do that. Are you using any cad and cam software ? or mention your procedure to get your code.
