Out of Time

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!!

Like canvas??

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.

THIN.  THIN.  THIN.

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.

 

Fun times.
