    We scanned a couple 100+ year old Keys for an old house and machined them out of hardened steel.

    Then, we send for Black-Oxide coating.

    Rare wood.
    Some silly project for a Dentist...
    No Sprues.
    We machine One side....then fill with Stone.
    Flip- and finish other side.
    Part pops out without sprues.

    Bought this last week for $4000.

    Primacon CNC 500. (3M Lava mill)

    We will convert it to 98mm disk.

    Horizontal Spindle, not a Vertical mill.

    Crazy tool-change process. Way over engineered 20180302_141619.jpg

    You have to make your own gripper/holder to screw onto the base vice.

    We made the Black part here locally out of steel and then Black-Oxide treatment.

    nice, yet this one you linked looks way more bulky to me. Every millimeter matters when you use 5 axis milling machines that are not meant to the large industry or aeronautics

    Well, find me a smaller One.

    I look and never see smaller, but also needs to be strong.
