    Quick question, how much that block weigh? Looks like I can replace 4 45lb plates on the bench press bar with that block. lol

    Wow, won't be much of that left when your done. How long do you think it will take to hog out all of that material?

    That will be one solid rear end when your done.

    You know, since the program would be done already have you thought about an aluminum upgrade? Doing it out of a solid chunk of aluminum should be stronger then the cast case plus you could make it a little thicker and more ribbing.

    Strength, weight savings,...

    Just a thought and maybe a bad one. The casting these days is probably much better then the casting of the old days so there probably won't be much gain but I had to ask anyways.

    Can't wait to see the final cut.

    lol i'm pretty sure that weighs a couple hundred pounds easy. i'd be surprised if you could squat that, let alone bench it

    then again, what would i know... i'm in the wood business :-/

    hey thread-creator: videotape the CNC cutting it. then when you're done speed it up 10x, and put it on youtube. seriously...

    If thats mild steel it's gonna move around like a beotch!There will be no way to hold tolerances!I see 100 hours on a mill,at least 6 opps with no guarantee of a usable piece.Sorry,its what I do all day

    Yeah, but if it works we can get rid of our cast aluminum units that will break but not bend and get a steel unit that will bend but not break.
