    Yes aspire, Jazz did it.
    Not curved, hmm.. could use CNCtoolkit to wrap it round a profile. Finally an excuse to make the 5-axis spindle mount!

    Probably got it twice.

    I think 20 degree will cut a bit too deep? I doubt the time estimates will be anywhere near unless your machine acceleration is exceptionally high. Still it'll be interesting to find out.

    If I remember right thats roughly about what it took me when I did it.?? But it's been that long since I did it I can't remember.

    Like Jon says 20 deg will cut deep but I'm sure you will have sussed that and limited it's depth.? I've seen a nice one done with aspire that cuts the bottoms of deep area's flat and rest Vcarved.
