Aluminum 3357 Cylinder

Finally, after something of like 30 hours of CAD, CAM, and machine time I made one (hopefully) good one... Not easy to make, but I learned a heck of a lot...

Looks great, well done. What's your expected run time (edit - I know you are using a small desktop mill)?

Surface finish could use improvement, but I was trying to rush through getting one done just to say I did . I may pick up a tumbler to see how it does, either way its a tool I've been eyeing for a while.

I don't know exact run time, I don't have an ATC, I move slow myself, I have to do 3d surfacing for the teeth, and it is two ops. I will get that figured out later, hopefully...

Surface finish is affected by a lot of factors, in this case I'd assume rigidity of the machine.. you can always run multiple spring passes with minimal metal removal to improve the finish.
We use a tumbler at work.. I don't like the finish our leaves personally. . And it would dull the ratchet points for the pawl.

I wonder if my injection molding machine could handle that. Have to add a check valve to the nozzle to stop the 'drool' (yes, that is the technical term. means exactly what you think it does) and then I'm ready to put it through the paces.

When I get some shop time in the next couple days to make another with a few slight design changes.

Thanks for the kind words, but college starts next week so things will start to slow down
