There was an indian guy with a shop that used make parts for some of the nitro guys. Fuzzy Carter called him "Chief Auto Parts" He made a billet engine block for Eddie Hill. I read that he did it on a Bridgeport mill and there were five trash cans full of chips.

What's amazing to me is even though it takes 40 hours for the mill to do its job, it took 240(!) hours to write the program to do all that mill work.
A block fresh out of the mill looks like a piece of art.
