Part 0006 started

This part will require machining in two different setups. First I machined some counter-bored holes in a piece of wood ( using the Profile operation ) and finished them with Dad's pillar drill. I bolted this on to the table using the t-slots. I machined an area flat on the wood. I super-glued the Delrin to the wood. I am doing some profile operations with 6mm slot cutter. Unfortunately I forgot to check that the Y-axis had enough travel in the position I placed it. It hit the limit while rapiding to the outside profile. The part is not scrap. I will need to do it again, but machine an area in the wood with an island left standing in the middle to locate the part.
