Re: Primary Supports - Ball Cutter Question
Original poster: "Richard Modistach" <hambone-at-dodo-dot-com.au>
why dont you just leave more material on than you need,
drill a row of holes and cut the exess away slightly off
centre of the holes to create a 'clip' type hole, much easier than
buggerising around with milling cutters ect.
i,ve got a milling machine but i like the kiss method the best.
