I'm starting to work with machinable wax. This carving is approximately 1" in diameter and 1/8" thick.
It was cut using a 0.005" tapered ball end mill. The bit is so fine, the tip of it is smaller than a pin.
It makes very fine dust that needs to be blown out of the cracks, or it is a real pain in the butt to deal with after the fact.
It took 7 hours to run this job. The bit moves 0.02 milimeters each pass. Watch the video and you'll see the action.
Go to the next step to see how I solved the problem of killing an entire day and also hyperventilating.
