Default Very large mill I got to work on.

Figured id share what I have been doing on the weekends. I have been spending it in a local shop getting some machine time on a rather large mill, the part I am making is still under wraps for now but its rather small, this machine is able to hold a .001" tolerance any day of the week. With a 24' x axis 10' z axis and a 8' y axis most anything can be done on this sucker. In the past I had been limited to vertical mill with a rather small table. This is a horizontal but it even has a vertical attachment for those of you who have used mills and are not fans of the horizontal ones.
On to the pictures

This is not the piece I have been working on clearly, but base of a navy ship crane boom to show the size of the machine and its capabilities.



The operator and I watching the program I had written for the pieces I was making.

That's weak BB, tell me when you can have a redonkulously large (24x10x8'+ like you have) down to the ten thousands of an inch.


Hehe, cool mang! Yeah, I've been getting spoiled with the positively insane IT shop here my good friend owns. Unlimited access to the ability to fabricate positively ANYTHING!

That first photo is mis-leading, it's clearly the mounting ring of an enormous JL W7 driver with two aeroport cut-outs. Is that going to be enough port area though?
