Really, really beautiful weapon disk. Is it steel or aluminum? And you made it without CNC? How? (guessing a combo of lathe and bandsaw and some grinding?

We have CNC, but a rotary table is on the plate for next year I think. There's just some things it can do that are too difficult any other way. Any recommendations of where to get one or which features to look for?

Again, beautiful work.

i've seen some people do it, they just drill holes on the opposite side to balance it. i think this was well worth the effort though, as soon as i harden it it will hold up 10 times better then the crappy ti one did

ad yes very soon, i haven't gotten around to redesigning the bot yet but it will have the same size disc as the last version

and i haven't spun it yet but it feels pretty good
