I'd wait for TC to get in on this but what are they machining the CNC billet from? You get back to the problem of "CNC metal". Is it Carbon steel, or another kind of alloy steel? I had a steel hinge for my backyard gate fail on me because we were loading it with too much shear force (the new gate door was heavy) or maybe it wasn't heat treated properly or had too much/little carbon in it or something.

EDIT: OP, I could also mill things on a lathe but doesn't mean that I'll get any sort of precision, if I'm lucky I *might* be within 30 thou of what I want.
