Yes I have a vacuum table and at it's best it is great. But when machining a thin materials the mill cutter tends to lift the plate and then it comes loose. By hand you can't move the plate you are machining sideways, but when you lift a corner it's quite easy to detach. I usually run in to problems with under 1mm thicknesses.

Understand, been using wax and that has lifted a couple times also. Went back to using double sided tape. It's a lot more clean up on table plate and part but haven't had any lifting .

Glad you brought up the turning forces, I would have never thought of sidewall forces under sharp turns. Really great work your doing!!

I think normal solder melting point is about the same, so you have a risk of melting joints.

I got the first 3D print of the bonnet from my buddy Steve. It turn out nicely, all though it is actually a test print to see how it fits to the rest of the machine.
It needs some small adjustments and after that I think it's going to be perfect
