    Ok so your milling them rather than hobbing them. How many can you get on the bed at ounce.?

    If your cutting 1 at time then the small time investment in making fixture plates will be very much worth it.

    With bit of careful code cut & pasting it would be very easy to cut 2 or 3 different parts that use the same tools on the same fixture plate.

    Ye, I just do 1 at a time. I have space for a few more - when I designed the mill it was done for reasonable size (500 x 300 at least)
