Machining an INJECTION MOLD!

Our first injection mold – machined on the Haas VM3! We’ve come a long way since that Taig in the NYC apartment and this is a proud machinist moment!. We wanted a high volume, low cost way to make SMW fixture plate plugs. Although we started out with the DIY CNC Turrett Lathe project (final episode coming soon), we were still open to other solutions. So, come be a part of this awesome moment!
