From the world's smallest watch brand: Makino up and running!

Yes, we are happy.  The 50 micron wire cutter has been successfully installed.   Exclusively for our rebelde comrades: here is the picture of a first test cut. For comparison, the top surface is a standard milling finish , the cube itself is cut by EDM. The finish  can be best described like one on the edge of a razor blade. Scary!
The cutting time for this tiny cube: two hours.  Machining cost:   Just over $120. It goes without saying that only the space, medical and watch industries can afford such costs.  Exciting times ahead!
