    What's going on in your shop?

    I learned I need to revisit my backspacer op 2 program. For some reason it has incorrectly chamfered one of my spacers and scrapped a part. Basically I learned I need to learn more.

    How Much Polishing is Enough?

    I just assign my shop an hourly rate (plus consumable costs). If the knife sells for a price that reflects the hours then it’s worth it.

    Which EDM stone works best on Magnacut? Let's find out!

    It did a good job and I have a tight radius. It should be easier with a larger radius plunge I would think. The stones just seem to conform to the shape pretty quickly.

    Which EDM stone works best on Magnacut? Let's find out!

    Thanks for the informative thread Josh! I ended up buying some of these stones and a cheap air tool. I have used stones manually before and I can say that the tool is 100% worth it.

    Making some lock inserts. I have been battling these for a while but I think I have finally found a combination of materials and geometry I’m happy with.
