don’t be too sure, it might just be wood with metallic paint on it to fool us

@PatrickW, you missed an opportunity to drop this on 10/9/20 which when reversed would have been 20, 9, 10…

Oh wait, that date is still in the future. Never mind! I can’t wait another 4 days.

You all are making me feel old. I’m having trouble understanding these AmongUs references.

Is there a second fixture plate? Trying to compare it to the mk2 one, and can’t seem to find anywhere the pulley would be fixtured (assuming it’s not an exception to “mostly metal”)

Sir this is a teaser.
For all we know it might actually be die cast aluminum.

Yeah, you’re probably right. I bet they are using aluminum.

This is a tooling fixture plate for a pallete system for rapid part changes. This is not the actual part being machined but potentially an impression of what is to be made. In the sections with the material removed you can see threaded holes with the relief cutouts that are most likely for miteebite clamps that will hold the part in place repeatably. The other portions have what to be the forks or some other part that is located by the large circular hole for the part 0. Again these are just my opinions of what I see and cant wait to see the final product

Yep, that’s what I was thinking. I was trying to compare this to some of their other machining processes from mk2 to see if I could find any noticeable changes. Mk2 had at least 2 pallets so it seemed odd that there was only 1 in the OP.

The plate is obviously milled from a solid block of 7071 aluminum (with their five axis mill) to retain the maximum structural strength.
