Having a kit made of plastic is quite a work for me, but having one out of aluminium?  :twitch: Awesomeness.  8) But I really like Otto though, for some odd reason.

Wow, some really cool work here - love that spider mech!
I'm just starting to work in aluminium myself - just got a lathe and mill. It's wonderful to machine.

Hi Petar B,
Yes once you get started in aluminum it's hard to stop.  The other great thing about it is it makes great masters for
casting in resin.  Looking forward to seeing some of your work here.

Regards,
Markus

Love your Night Spider! What make and model cnc machine are you using? I actually just picked up a Syil X4Plus to look at doing some of the same sort of thing. I'm loving the learning curve. Something so cool about milling with computers. :)

Trilbite:
Most of the work was done on a Charmilles Robofil 290P, that is a wire edm machine .  Any other work was done on a
manual Bridgeport miller.  We have several cnc mills at work but they tend to be in use most of the time with contract
work and its hard to slide something in on the side.
