Anyway, some photos taken during the session.

|Making the counterbore using a 3/16" endmill after drilling the 3/32" hole.|
|The 2 bigger holes done. The 2 1/16" holes will be next.|
|This was where I screwed up. The 2 small 1/16" holes are no supposed to be through holes...|
Quite some time was spent trying to prepare the brass stock to achieve certain level of accuracy. This, from what I see from the plan, is not required as the dimensions of the stock are not critical. I did it nonetheless to see how close I can get as a form of practice. Besides, I was working only to 0.01mm (10 microns?). Wait till you see the measuring done with the micrometer; the numbers wouldn't be that nice...
Anyway, I've to start over again with this...
