It might not look much, but the first cuts on the mill have been done. These will be the radius of the conrod as the thickness increases to the eyes of the big and small ends. A simple groove on the rotary table.
Except that nothing is simple is it? The mill isn’t big enough to do the slot in one go, the job would hit the body of the mill. We had to do one half from each side. Hard to explain in words, but obvious as a dog’s doo-dahs when you see it.
Big end done on both sides, on to the little end next.
