Great news! The rest of my drill casing is in my possession! I finally have the handle to my drill. I have four days max to finish my model. Considering spray paints and spray fillers need to dry overnight, this is not great.
Oh well, I must endure and see what I can do.
The top half of my drill had a rough finish after CNC. Needed a lot of filling. I mean, a lot!
These initially seem better, although one has a weird texture all over it? Not great when it has so much detail to sand around!!
I can deal with this. Just about.
The issue I have is to do with the random wall thickness and the lip and groove.
The two halves just don’t line up! One side has a 5mm thick wall, the other 1.5mm. The back part, the lip and groove is there although SUPER THIN! The front, has a lip, but no groove because the receiving wall thickness is to thin to have one.
I’m not sure what happened, but this makes my tight time schedule much more difficult. I live in fear of breaking it and trying to line things up.
