POCKET

I AM LOOKING FOR AN EASY WAY TO MILL AN OPEN ENDED POCKET. THE OPENING
IS NOT AS WIDE AS THE POCKET.ONE WALL ON THE OPEN END IS ONLY HALF AS
HIGH AS THE WALL IT IS PERPENDICULAR TO. THIS WALL CONTINUES PAST THE
SHORTER WALL TO THE REST OF THE PART.WHEN I DEFINE THIS HIGHER WALL ,THE
ENTIRE SURFACE HIGHLIGHTS PAST THE THE SHOETER WALL OUTSIDE THE POCKET.
THIS EXTRA SURFACE AREA IS INCLUDED IN THE MILLING SEQUENCE,WHICH I DON'T
WANT.

MY BIG PROBLEM IS I CAN'T GET MULTIPLE PASSES TO CLEAN THE MIDDLE OF
THE POCKET.I AM USING A PROFILE AND THOUGHT IF I PUT 2 PASSES WITH A .45
STEP OVER. I TRIED A MILL VOLUME BUT PROBABLY DIDN'T DEFINE IT CORRECTLY.
THE POCKET IS 3-1/8 SQUARE AND I'M USING A .5 EM.
THANKS
