I would like to get the forums opinion on whether the SB is capable of making molds for jewelry with sufficient accuracy. I am talking about molds in the range of 1.5 tall by .75 wide with a .1875 height with a lot of detail. I need to use ball nose end tools as small as 1/32 to get the quality of cut I need to avoid having to do much polishing. I want to know what you think about this type of project for the ShopBot.
If anyone has experience in this area of jewelry mold making with a SB or any other type of CNC mill I would very much like their input either on this forum or by private e-mail.
Thank you very much for your time.

The SB is far too big and coarse for you.
