    Hey Jazz its an optical alignment table your quite correct , they were done on a hurco

    I am designing some cnc controlled fixtures and machinery though for the shop but without an industrial cnc its kind of hard to make them

    Its simply hard ano with a coating called marbocoat applied after to stop epoxy and the like adhering

    i use the aluminium specific WNT milling cutters any aluminium specific cutter will give you a pretty nice ,they eat material though you have to be careful at your ramp in when side milling as they like to take a big bite they supply the place i used to work AMRC | The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre with Boeing the fancy finish on the tooling plate is just standard mic 6 the actual face mill they use is a PCD insert on a 1.6m dia face mill ,
