Cutting a CNC mold

Today is the day after thanksgiving. Also know as Black Friday.
For me the black in Black Friday is the black residue from polishing aluminum.
Im grateful to be here doing this instead of what I was doing last year.
Last year I was in the middle of a 6 month round of chemo and all that it entails. Food tastes good
again, Im regaining my strength, and everything is about as good as I can expect.

I feel like getting that round tuit and doing projects I have meant to do sometime
This week I programmed and machined a mold to layup Rotor fins.

Very nice!

Do you mind me asking: Is there a reason you went span wise rather than chord wise?

The mold is open on both ends, so it seemed logical to be changing directions off of the part.
There is also a data transmission consideration; chord wise toolpath would result in very short blocks of movement.
My system has 1980s technology and speedy data is a choke point.
