Tormach CNC 1100 1st Part (Connecting Rod)
1st part on a new Tormach CNC 1100. Wanted to do something a little bit more complex than a block with a pocket, so I scaled a stock LS2 connecting rod by 1/2. Machining was a bit on the conservative side (I think). 3000 RPM (~300 SFM) 29 in/min (0.0047" chipload) 0.050" depth of cut 0.225" width of cut (60% stepover)
