Here it is, it comes in at a little less then 1.5lbs. If I had really put some thought into it and ran it through FEA, I could have cut that in half.
Hogged out inside of part.
Damn dude, work of art! Is it easier to mill it from a big chunk of billet, or can you make two halves and have them welded? Not second guessing, just wondering for my own personal growth
