Excal diet milling

hey guys
I have just started a Excal diet cut and here are some pictures of it so far.
It has been 3 weeks into its diet and has already lost 2.6oz's. I can only work on it a few hours a week as I still have the day job and triggers to do during the week
here are the pictures from week 2 & 3, week 1 was starting on the programming
Starting weight was 19.8 oz

WIN a free Carbon Fibre trigger
Guess the total weight loss
here is the spread sheet so you can see what has been already submitted

week 2





week 3 today
weight today is 17.2 oz
total loss is 2.6oz
bottom tube cut today, front and mid section

Nice work. Seeing anyone milling excals in itself excites me.

Curious on the milling around set screws and some of the air passages..

We know that it can be more rounded and less blocky around these areas (proof = JMJ featherlite) but like DCs yours are a bit blocky. Is this due to the fact that you dont have actual cad files with info on depth and placement?

Once again, nice work, not downplaying it, just curious as this is one thing that turns me off from DC milling (that and any FSP cuts)

Curious.

Excited to see the progress.

this is just the roughing stage so it is not finished yet, yes it is bloky around the holes I will be thinning this area down once both sides are roughed out .
The air passage is down to the minimum wall thickness I would go.
There will be windows in the top tube and it will be shorted with a front detent pin bolt so that can allow this quite abit, maybe even a butt cut there just have to see how the feeling goes as I machine.
I do have cad files but with the body you dont need them as I am doing the working drawings straight from it then the CNC programming from them

This is like the coolest episode of the The Biggest Loser.

We should all throw in to have a AKA diet competition
