My current CNC project is in aluminum so it does not qualify as a wood poject.
I am replicating a pot metal lever that cranks an antique revenue stamp machine, however, replicating it as a 3D model for machining has been a challenge.

I didn t realize that pot metal could be cut on a CNC. I thought it was usually molded. What do you use to cut it?

He said his project was aluminum. The original he is copying was pot metal.

Ooooops, I didn’t see that he had already straightened out the misunderstanding.

I think you are right, machining pot metal on a CNC would probably generate a lot of shrapnel.
