    If your eye/hand co-ordination is decent, figure about 2-3 hours to finish one. The key thing is to not push the mill harder than it can easily cut. Extra passes at less than normal depth adjustment makes it even easier.

    Ate a pork sammich and passed out for a snooze after a long day at the shop. (Anything for more than two hours constitutes a long day for me ). t1066's setup was interesting and worked pretty good. We got two done on the lathe/mill but the jig is pretty cut up at this point and another top for it or another jig is needed. It seems like we can't do any of them perfectly and that kind of bugs me, something like this shouldn't be all that hard to get straight. I did one in two hours and I don't think I can knock much time off that. One thing that would definitely be better would be a 4" end mill with just a short length of flutes on the bottom of it, like 3/8" to 1/2", that's all you really need and that would speed things up a little as we wouldn't have to worry about it touching the jig.
    Hi, how's your mental health?

    Can you use brass bushings with the router so you don't tear up the jig? Also, are you letting the router spin down completely before you try to remove it from the jig?

    I have those brass bushings I use with my dove tail jig. I would think you could use something similar.

    I don't know on that but this isn't the router, he didn't seem to have any trouble but he had a mill bit that was like I described.

    I'd be interesting in attending on the weekends. I don't have a jig...but if someone is willing to loan me theirs along with router...I'll exchange it for my smoker. I can make pulled pork or something else on my smoker.

    You could take a dremel to the endmill and dull the flutes higher up to protect the jig

    I did think about doing something like that. Could also stick it in the lathe and cut them back but they'd still be there and eventually would eat up the jig.

    If you had the equipment... you could make a fence that the outside of the router could ride against but it would only work with 1 router. Are you using mills like this one? https://www.americangunsmithtooling....rbide-end-mill

    That was the mill I was using in the router. Works well.
