Interesting, that logic makes sense. CNC's aren't magic I guess.CNC is only as good as the programmer, and how well the machine is set up.
If the machine has any slop, it can ruin a project with tight tolerances. If cutter dia.
isn't exact, it to can ruin the project with those tight tolerances, or at minimum if it's
undersized, is cause a program adjustment. CNC is great for production runs, once dialed in, but for a one off, I would choose manual.
With manual machining, the tolerances can be adjusted on the fly, without having to change the toolpaths.
I'm guessing it's just a square dado being cut in the slide? I'm sure you can do it.
Maybe AllenM's opinion would be different.
There is a radius at the front, hard to see here, but this is my scrap piece of steel test piece.
