CNC Machined Radiator Cap Part I

Today I reached a milestone on a side project.  I’ve been converting a manual milling machine to a CNC over the past year and a half.   One of the main reasons was to make small custom pieces and accents for the Trans Am and GTO.  I finally reached the point to where I could make some decent 2D profiles.  I still have a little work before I can make 3D profiles.  One of the first parts I plan to make is a custom CNC radiator cap with the Pontiac Indian Head emblem.  The pictures below show the first test cut to make sure the program I created was working properly.  I’ve purchased a smaller tool which will tighten up the profile.  I’ll post more pictures of the finished product when it’s finished in the next week or two.  If anyone is interested in a radiator cap or other custom Pontiac themed machining please leave a comment on this post for more details.
