I work for a my father and his business partner out here in California and they decided to branch out from our current business and try something new. Lucky for me it fits right into my tinkering lifestyle. They decided to open up a laser engraving company and I am the lucky one to who gets to see what this machine can do. I have a small collection of DE's and a handful of straights, so I decided today to make a couple sets of scales for fun. I made a few out of acrylic and some out of wood we had laying around. They're just simple designs with some text, but in the next few days I'm want to change the style of scales and maybe add more detail into the etching besides text. Just throwing a few pics up for you guys to see what this little machine can do. If you have any ideas for a design or something you'd like to see on a set of scales let me know. (The wood is .2500" and the acrylic is .1250". both were a little large for the blade I just tossed in there. The scale I made the template off of is only .0830" thick.)
I'm always looking for something else to do. Next on my list is some etching on some of my display cases and maybe playing with it on some DE's.
