First CNC knife part!

Holy crap! It actually happened! The machine just cut its first actual part!

Pushing that big green button was incredibly terrifying! But no explosions (not even a tiny one!) and absolutely zero fuss as it went through this A2 tool steel like it was butter.

It made less noise doing this than my old bench top mill did while just running without cutting! Total time to make the cut was 4 minutes, 6 seconds... Wow. Just wow guys.
