  1. how long does it take to cut a 1" thick 7" diameter circle?

  2. what is this material?

  3. nice time lapse, good ole bridgeport retrofit does the job again

  4. Don't you wish it really cut that fast? 🙂
    Looks very similar to my machine… I have a Wells Index 820 (1987 Model) it's in storage in St Louis right now… working to get it here in Austin. I love doing that kind of stuff. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Nice job. I like the 4 relief cuts you used when doing the outside profile so you could easily deal with the cut off stock. SAE Formula is a great program. Have fun with it.
