Actually, it's 2-3 days by hand including drilling holes. I need lots of breaks so I don't get sloppy.

DCB: The economy of motion issues come from the fact of making it easier to do it that way by hand. Also, the paths should be changed a bit. I chose them so that everything was a multiple of a half crank on the mill. That's not quite optimal.

Also, my mill has some slop, so I try to only go from up to down, and left to right to avoid any gear slop. (It's sort of hard to explain)
