Folks.. from time to time I get to cut rings for Colin(colwax), and man, let me tell you , he designs some lovely one, but !! BEEEEEEG!!!

Most we are not able to post but this one I gotten his permission to post with, so I have decided to do a video tutorial for Rhinocam on this one too.

Without further ado :)


A sneak at the paths involved, 4 tool changes and heap of paths, this will be in video, the rest is methodology :), the only thing more interesting about this job is that it features a hollow head, ie: its not cut through to the finger and has a thin sleeve inside, so accessing those hollow area from the top at various angles was a fun exercise

Image
Split a bit of signet tube off,
Image
onto the conical cone clamps
Image
onto the lathe to cut a lip to fit Niko/Kens fixture
Image
Cut that lip!
Image
Move lipped section into Niko/Kens fixture and Core the fingersize
Image
Move it onto the Minitech and leave the rest to Mrs Botha ;)

Hi Chris,
you should split up each of your test cases and post them separately. This way it does not take that long to load and more readable. Just a suggestion.

Lovely work. Keep them coming.
