    I can't believe the cost of new virtual carbide tooling for my virtual 5-axis mill. It's going to literally drive me virtually bankrupt!

    I'm sure there's an [assistance] program for that...

I would think with the proper cutter it would only take about 20 to 30 minutes to mill 1/4" off. Thought??
    send it out for blanchard grinding most of those shops are used to doing things like that and are well equipped to do it. I use blanchard grinders all the time especially for burnouts

    Ox was making a joke. The 283 inch Chevy was lusted after by about most anyone coming out of the Flathead era. For many the 283 was their first car, or they wished it was! Easy way to remember steel wt.

    Opps! sorry. . . google "Flathead" FYI.

    I'd do this no problem for an actual customer.
    Don't know the tolerance on flatness, may not be tight, but what if it is, and it moves more than you think, might require a second flip.

    Your the hero, it's all yours.

    I make small press bolsters on a pretty regular basis (the plate in this thread would fall within the small category). Typically working to flat and parallel .0015" per foot or better. I'm not a hero, it's just part of what I do to pay the bills.

    As far as the flipping goes, I would be running this on a HBM. Couple chokers, hard edge protectors, and your preferred overhead lifting method is all it takes.

    And if you missed all my other replies, yes 500 is cheap. I mentioned that the steel costs 4500 to replace, and I dont do many jobs that cost less than the steel. If this one was stupid easy, wide open, and COD, it would probably still be closer to 1500.

    The set-up time on a Blanchard is PDQ

    I've driven a few.

    The time this job has taken, it could have been done on a surface grinder with a hand crank handle!
