Question, What size milling bit did you use for slotting your claws?
I had the same thought, but decided to just pull up a stool and wind the table back and forth for a while.

I found some 1.5mm end mill bits that have a 1/8" shank. Amazon is littered with them. A lot of oversea sellers offer 5 or 10 packs for $10-$15. I highly recommend multiples as I've probably already been through 5 of my 10 bits. But better to loose cheap tools than mess up my parts!
