Hey wait, I just realized, there is a step on this part right? There's no step on the complete unit, does some of this plate go up inside the rest of the unit?!
are you talking about the control box and the one on the DV6?Hey wait, I just realized, there is a step on this part right? There's no step on the complete unit, does some of this plate go up inside the rest of the unit?!
Hmm... I don't have anything there on my cast. There's a tiny smudge but nothing like the DV6 part. I always thought that was actually an assembly divot..here is a drawing to explain better what I mean,

I don't think the part was dissasembled, hence why I was asking before if I should add the little detail of the DV6 as it was possibly visible in one photo of the Barbican:

yes, that is the issue, I don't see it on your cast, but this is my best theory. just no idea if I go with that detail or not.
yes I have to admit I'm a bit stressed because this is taking too long actually! I need to figure out something to go faster on the roughing up from square to cylinder!excellent! That looks like such a hard thing to machine... great job
hey, I wouldn't be able to say if this was actually done with a file or a radiusing tool to be honest. I matched the radius in my 3D model from what I could see on all the refs and just radiused that with a tool on the mill, the end result is pretty similar I hope.Those are beautiful and some wonderful work! I do want to throw this out there -- are we sure they radiused the corners on the emitter? At first blush it looks to me like they took a flat file and just knocked the corners down. Which is a pity because your work looks much nicer.
