The parts

All parts are CNC milled out of AlMG1 alloy mostly using 3mm think plates and some smaller parts of 8mm.
In my case I am using a vacuum table to hold the plates in place during milling, hence it requires some manual finishing touches.
Right after the milling the parts look like this



I mill all parts using a 5mm cutter, various drill bits and a Taper for a 0.3mm chamfer.
Next step is to manually chamfer the bottom side and to breakthrough all drilling holes.
Result looks perfect, doesn't it?
The drive shaft in the middle I bought from a company, this goes way beyond my capabilities.

In addition you need tons of 25mm spacer nuts with matching screws, the Skate wheels you create a groove matching the rope diameter and some more parts.
