I lost my wallet last week. What a pain!!!. This had me shopping for another one. I got, as a gift, a small plastic wallet where you just put some credit cards and a few bills. I travel a lot and when in another country, I like to just throw a couple of credit cards, my hotel key and a little cash in my pocket to not carry everything. I liked this little gift I got with my new “everyday” wallet but was cheap plastic. I thought it might be a great project to finally tackle aluminum. I’ve had the 1/8" aluminum plates from Carbide 3D for many months just sitting there waiting to be used. So here it is. I am very pleased with myself. Followed the feeds and speeds posted by Carbide 3D as my start and adjusted a little here and there. Slow job but a great finish. It took about two hours. The rubber band is from the cheap plastic one I got.
I’m going to work now in learning where I can optimize my feeds and speeds to see if I can mill this quicker. I think I’ll send this to be anodized black.
