Spiral Barley Twist

I just finished my first test run making a hollow spiral barley twist post on the recoil, it is made from a 4″x4″ post. I bought the barley twist bit from http://www.magnate.net/index.cfm?eve…roup&theID=240

Total machine time = 17 minutes

What I think is really amazing, I machined this with G-Code I wrote myself

    That’s a nice new bit you’ve got there. The result looks pretty impressive. Especially the hollow one 🙂

      Thanks Lars, I hollow barley twist is the same as the non hollow one except I used a 1/2″ end mill along the same toolpath cutting all the way to the center on the part.

    What size bit did you use? They’re not as expensive as I thought they might be! Probably will have to order one…
