    Cnc lathe hookup?

    Hi guys,

    I have a small part I need Cnc cut to test a drawing. There maybe a revision required if the initial drawing is not totally correct.

    Can anyone recommend someone? I understand there may be a minimum job cost and thatís totally fine.

    Iím in Brisbane , happy to pay for freight.


    Cheers!!

    Might be better off having the first one done manually?
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

        Cnc is no more accurate than a manual machine.

        Unless it some funky free form shape.

              I probably don't understand what you are needing, but I'm confused how making a part on a CNC tests the drawing. Why can you not get the drawing right? Manufacturing the part will always lead to some inaccuracies from a wide range of sources. One CNC machine will not make it exactly the same as another, different tooling, different programming, different material, different operator.

              Is the issue you have having with tolerances?

                Itís going to be easier for me to this way to make improvements or adjustments. I hear what youíre saying though. This is cheap insurance when you plan to have 100+ made.
