  1. They do this to show the high precision of chuck, and gentle holding of working piece. After reinserting chess bishop, positioning precission is still at high level, and we see no vibration when it rotates.

  2. Everything looks very slow. Safety distance before cutting starts is always like 2-3mm .. much time waste. Surface looks ugly and feedrate looks slow. Also the cutting goes to the wrong direction. Everyone prefers concurrent milling 🙂 Sorry for the critics 😀

  3. Judging by the size of the rook along side the tech's hand . . . . and the cost of aluminum . . . . and the labour . . . . I'd have to say a complete set would run close to $45 000.
