Some girl with psychic powers, she said, "fro, what's your sign?' [Apr. 10th, 2007|09:22 pm]
I blinked and told her neon! I thought I'd blow her mind!

My latest piece of scrap

This is a sign I am making for Techshop, just in time for Yuri's Night (GET YOUR TICKETS WHILE YOU STILL CAN!)

60"x18"x.25" plate steel off of SOMETHING military, I don't know what. I wanted to make the STUPER steam punk sign for Techshop so I grabbed the rustiest piece of scrap I could find. I wanted to make the most of my piece, so I split the gear and used the knock off as the top half.

Behold the rust and the slag. That was done on purpose. Ryan and I spent HOURS making sure we got the perfect amount of slag to frame the letters the way I envisioned. That took using the machine in ways it wasn't necessarily meant to be used. At least not for .25" steel.

You know you know a machine when you know how to misuse it
