    While I'm not a lawyer (duh), I think this strategy has you committing extortion (threatening in order to extract money), no matter how "justified" you might be.

    That's sort of what I was talking about, but sometimes a hard steel roller (like a brayer but made to impress materials) is used to force the abrasive grains into a soft lapping plate, turning the...

    Have test cuts made by whoever you buy the router from. You need to ensure it's got good enough stiffness and path control that using a small endmill will give the finish you want. If it has a...

    Depending on inside radii of the punched holes, maybe get a small CNC router table and fixture it with some location pads and quick clamps, then profile the holes with an 1/8" (or whatever) endmill. ...

    Presumably you'll have a cell phone with you, so you can search for new pricing on common tooling items you want. Machinery is a little trickier, but for stuff available new you can try:

    How well it's supported and how well balanced it is will influence the maximum safe speed. How are you dealing with those two aspects?

    Why do this? Why bring up an old thread with a leading question, when your damn name is "CleanAir707"? If you're going to just shout out loud that you're fishing, why not say so up front?

    When lapping soft materials it is worth trying to charge (embed the grains into) the lapping plate with abrasive rather than trying to use use loose particles. This way the grains are anchored into...

    You'll want to test your endmill paths when cutting Al or other gummy/sticky parts with just an air blast. If you get acceptable results (no BUE) then go ahead, otherwise you may need to add a mist...
