CNC has a new cabinet around it. It started out with a little piece of 8x30" plexiglas as a splash shield. With the 4th axis installed, it's not usable. Meaning anything you cut sprays everywhere. A full half of the mill is no covered with aluminum extrusion and 1/4" plexiglass 24" tall. Sliding plexi' door on the front, and everything else (sides, front's) raises up 8" to get to the chips. Remote mount, Emergency Power Off, Start and Power buttons are in as well. Those will get installed once the wiring gets here. Need nearly 250' of wire to get it all done. But we won't have to reach across everything through the window to turn it on/off and hit the ohshit button.
There are over 2500 5.56 empties at the processors tonight. They'll be decapped, swaged, sized, trimmed and cleaned in a large ultrasonic bath. I'll have a bunch to reload once the new pistols are done. Then on to .308, .40, .45 and maybe a few thousand 9mm. Be nicer to have everything loaded and not setting in bins like it has for years.
Other than that, we've prepared a special Minuteman AR to have run through it's paces at a 'meet' in PA in a few weeks. That, along with a bunch of ammo and mags and instructions to run the hell out of it. I hope to get some blurry face videos of some folks beating one of the Minuteman rifles. That, along with some still shots, will head into the summer adverts.
Once the slides get here (special order, of course) we start building pistols again. One of them isn't spoken for, so it you want it, let me know. You could be running your very own 1911 by the end of September if you did.
