This part appears simple but has some excellent workholding and CAM tricks! We used tabs to hold and machine the part, experiment with Tormach Pathpilot G64 to optimize a 3D toolpath, and use a Harvey lollipop cutter to machine undercuts for the universal joint!
Finally, what kind of people would we be if we didn't cover mistakes we made along the way?

I discovered machining as a young adult and am grateful to have found something I love and am able to share with others.
We hope NYC CNC not only makes you a better machinist but helps you understand and learn more about how to succeed as a manufacturing entrepreneur!
