I recently found out that a friend of mine for over 40 years just found out his riding days are over. Seems he has something wrong with his balance and the doc told him it would be a good idea if he did not ride anymore. Problem was his wife was with him when the Doc told him that. We all know how that turns out. Well, not to be totally bummed out he has decided that he is going to fix his garage up the way he has always wanted it instead of the way it has always been. Right down to a big comfy easy chair, large screen TV, built in bar. . his motorcycle. . you are getting the picture.
So. Figured I would make something to hang on the wall for him. Here it is, not painted yet, may never get painted, all depends on what he wants to do.
It is roughly 18 inches tall. The relief depth is slightly over 1.6. It is construction pine that I laminated to reduce the warpage.
Interestingly this thing cut really, REALLY well. I have been using chinese HSS bits for a while now. Very little fuzzies.
Edit: More about the settings. I applied a 6 degree draft to the model. Then I did a slight overall smoothing. The roughing was done with a 10mm end mill running at 350 IPM 6mm deep. I did a secondary rough cut with a 6mm ball nose. I modified the cnc file to eliminate most of the air passes so that it would not take so long. The finish cut was programmed at 150 IPM with a 1mm tapered ball nose. Of course it only got to 150 for short periods on the straightaways.
