This project involved one solid block of Sheffield Steel that weighed 2,200 lbs. This massive steel block measured 42″ W x 15″ L x 12″ H. The machining process basically took one corner out of the block. During the process the block is cut apart, then rough machined for the slide inserts. The block is then bolted back together.
