    First three cuts with SC

    I think for putting that on black I would of inverted the cut so that what is green would be black and what is black would be green.

    Friend of mine killed a deer today

    If it was a doe wouldn't it be more accurate to say I killed Bambi's Mom? Which to me sounds even worse than killing Bambi.

    New cutting light, now I can see

    Moody Blue, I have not worked with the white, but the color strips I've bought from them were very bright and I expect the white would work for what you're proposing, at only $16, it'd be worth giving it a try I think.

    Hard Drive recovery

    One thing you might try before tearing apart the drive. If you have an extra computer, install LYNIX on it and see if you can get it to see the drive. Lynix is really good at detecting drives and reading the raw data when a windows PC can't.

    If you store them without application tape on it should help, then just tape them up when they sell.

    Fluorescent vinyl

    If you do that you'll loose some of the brightness/pop of the color.

    Fluorescent vinyl

    Fluorescent "glows" because of it's reaction to UV light. Consequently, the vinyl does not have UV protection and it fades rapidly.

    Edge Lit Sign

    Made another one of these for another guy in the motorcycle club that also rides a 675. He wanted a full frame which allowed me to then put LEDs all around it. I'm not as happy with the frame as I would like but the overall sign turned out really well.

    I'm looking for something like this image in vector form. I'm finding tons of photos like this one of jewelry and a few tattoo's and I think I have one that I could probably get a half decent trace from but figured I'd ask here before putting too much work into it.

    Would like to play with glass but don't have the equipment to cut and shape glass.

    What program are you using? In Inkscape, select the horns and the head then hit Ctrl and the - key. Note, this will delete the horn. So if need to keep it, duplicate the horn first. Post a jpg or screen capture of what you have so far.

    Scam Order Alerts

    ah, so the initial email isn't really a big deal, it's the follow up that will bite you.

    Scam Order Alerts

    I get that this is not legit, but what I never understood is what are they actually after? The info the are asking for is standard sales data, about the only thing you responding to them would do is confirm that the email address is valid.

    Kicking my BUTT

    Found the PDF with it. I was going to post what I did as I edited the file but it won't let me copy and paste to the browser for some reason. So here is a text file with the steps. steps.txt

    Kicking my BUTT

    If it's like the devil was the are a lot of layers that are not actually seen so you can remove those. Just find the layers that make up what you see then weld and cut till you get what you want with a minimum of shapes/layers. Is that logo in the same PDF that was linked to in your other post?

    Just realized I put plexiglass is trade name for plexiglass. lol Should of been plexiglass is a trade name for acrylic.

    Celtic Tree of Life Lovers

    Yeah, Plexiglass is a trade name for acrylic, like Xerox machine for copy machine. I get it from Lowes or Home Depot. You can't get a very deep etch, so you can't get the multi depth details you can with glass but you can get a good enough etch to glow with edge lighting. I cut it down with a Radial Arm Saw and a standard saw blade. Get a pretty decent cut, then sand the edges down and flame polish them. I've had pretty good luck so far.

    Blast, it is acrylic and I used an air eraser. If you look at it really close the etching is not as uniform as I'd really like but for using an air eraser it turned out really well. I hope to upgrade to a full blast cabinet soon.

    Finally had time to finish up this project.
  24. It's only a 2 to 3 hour time difference depending on Day Light Savings time so you shouldn't have to get up early to be able to get in touch with them.
