Default CAT 14M3 Motor Grader

I decided to start building a new grader. It's going to be Cat 14M again but this time the newer 14M3 model.

I'm using Fusion 360 to draw all the parts.

This is what I'm trying to built:

There's couple of reasons, it was very fun project at the first time (or have I just forget all the not so fun parts) and I think I can make some areas better.
Also there's not too many grader projects going on over here.

I got to the mill today, but it did not go quite as planned
The front frame is so long that i had to disable my limit switches on x-axis to get every millimeter in use. I of course at the other end my table hit the end and lost some steps. I did not noticed that right away but when I did, it was game over
The pocket was machined from two directions, and the left one wen't well, but on the right it lost the steps and the pockets did not quite meet
