Machining Connecting Rods & Other V8 Engine Parts| WW219

After 5-Axis machining our V8 engine block, one of our interns, Alex, wanted to go the extra mile. Today we’ll machine connecting rods using a custom fixture, the handle for the crank using mickey mouse corners, and finally some legs, which allow us to display the engine AND are the first and last crank shaft mounting brackets. Let’s dive in!
