Good to see you're using pretty much the same tool set I've got. I hate it when I see someone's perfect work only to find out they have a Bridgeport and 50 years experience with it. You're trigger and safety cuts look factory.
Did you use Tortort's or Robert Forbus' measurements?
I finally got Stottman's photo book and it confirms what I feared about the T3 notches. They're not simple plunge cuts (footballs) like a Yugo. They're elongated with straight edges on top and bottom. I'll need to make a short jig so that I can plunge and slide it across the X axis a few mm.
Yeah, i think we've all done notches by hand. I have a pretty crappy hand, but it's fitting to the build.
