I have no experience whatsoever with milling machines (though it sounds
intriguing - there's another guy lurking 'round here by the name of Ron
Bihler who plays with CNC machines as part of his business, maybe he's

mechanically inclined but my trig and calc are pretty good. You start
talking about approximating arcs and I start thinking Riemann sums..
