Nick Moore did a bang up job on these beautiful parts. The shorter part is .875" tall and started as a 22 lb blank. The finished part weighs 1lb 1 oz with an ....080" wall thickness.
The taller part is much more impressive at 2 inches thick with a .080" wall. That blank started as 44lbs and the part finished at 3lbs 2 oz. That's a 93% weight reduction. We maintained a great surface finish too. Big shout out to Helical Solutions. The H40ALV reduced neck cutter was amazing for roughing and finishing. Once again we were impressed by helical.
