    If the part has been chromed.... it's fookin hard! Grinding it is usually the best way to cut it, even then it's still not fun.

    I've always used an old 20oz plastic Coke bottle, pop a hole in the cap and squirt away.
    But it sounds like you want the type that holds pressure? I've no experience with those types to be honest.

    Without knowing exactly what the parts look like before and after, could you make up a form tool for each size? Maybe that would cut down on the time to make the parts?

    Find an end mill with 5-6 flutes and decrease your stepover by 50% or more.
