Ouch!

I hope that this works out for you both enough to still be acquaintences.
I know that you are a stand up guy, Joe. Try your best to let it go, and move ahead with as much happiness as you can.
I look forward to anticipation of all your upcoming accomplishments, and appreciate your posting of build threads; that is very unselfish of you.

- what sort of cnc did the milling (ie like a cnc router or a 'big fellah')
- what cad & toolpath software?
- what supplies clamping pressure to the non-flanged TE?

ps, in one of your pics it looks like some cans of Zyvax release agent in the background. If so, is that what you're planning to use for layup? Just wondering, I had some 'issues' with the (petroleum based) stuff, but it was on a composite mold. It worked great on aluminum plugs but very difficult to pre-paint vs wax. Save that discussion for when the time comes, but was just curious... Molds look great!

not choosing sides but i can sympathise with Steven in some regards.. there's 2 sides to creation of a product, the creator/designer, and the designer/manufacturer. I'd like a $ for everytime someone has approached me to model something that I thought was total trash, but in their eyes it's like a creation from god himself. And often a cad operator can see aspects of the design that could be better, or be able to be machined more efficiently, but whether they should force the issue is another thing altogether. I even tend to agree with Steven about the planform change, faired surfaces with sharp changes in direction is rarely ever requested compared to free flowing designs, and cutting and polishing them accurately is even harder.

But in the end, you just gotta give the customer what they want, on time with no excuses. Or simply just say no

I'd just like to say thanks to all those responsible for creating the planes you do and sharing with those of us that live vicariously through you.

First Part Out!!!

I will share the process on the next one. I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to make a fool out of myself. Not bad!!! This is a basecoat/clearcoat paintjob. I sprayed clear in the mold first. If I wanted to, I could actually colorsadn and polish the clear just like a car paintjob.
