MACHINEABLE OR NO?

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

On your small, rectangular groove can you put a radius equal to the bottom radius on the ends and bottom edges? That way it can be machined with a ball type end mill (assuming not-to-tight tolerances).

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

As it is right now, I can't think of another way to make this to assumed-tolerance requirements unless it was with a sinker/ram EDM.

Adding some fillet radii in a few places where there are sharp corners will, as BrianE22 stated, allow for a much wider field of manufacturing possibilities.

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

Are you making one or one million?

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

What about the other half of the fitting? You need a volume for the check-plate to swing into, and I don't believe that cannot be made from a standard fitting.

RE: MACHINEABLE OR NO?

Can you just change the design and remove the sharp edges? Seems straight forward
