Waste Oil Heater Burn Plate

Posted by / Fabrication

At our local hackerspace we have a waste oil heater that some of our members built.  Right now we are using a stainless steel bowl for the burn plate.  We needed a proper solution.  To do that, we got a piece of aluminum round and needed to create a bowl in the middle with a 10 degree angle.  My lathe can’t handle stock 6″ in diameter so I decided to use the mill.  I drew the model, then set the operations in the CAM software.  This was the first time that I milled a 3 dimensional piece, rather than just a 2.5d part.  You can see the results below.
