CNC machined handle scales!

Second attempt at handles scales on the machine, they're not perfect but boy are they close!

I've been sick as a dog with some sort of flu for the last 4 days, so only been working on this in between sleeping and feeling like death... Programming for these took at least 2 days, still needs refinement. The slight ridge down the middle is one of three issues that needs to be fixed. The contour over the top of the scales was cut in two passes using a modified 1" radius roundover bit... Scary to see that that big 2.5" diameter cutter closing in on the G10 block at 3000RPM!
