Default The Last Thing A BG Will See....

A buddy sent me this - I thought y'all might like it - if you haven't already seen it.

Is it real? How hard would that be to do?

Would be very easy for a guy with a CNC mill and engraving. Workholding would be the only issue, and a good mill guy would have no trouble. Find a job shop with a good rep in your area and talk to them.

It's mostly done with lasers today.

Give Todd @ Customized Creationz a call for pricing. (Think it runs ~$75 on average) Tell him canebrake sent you.

He's good, can do 3D and curved surfaces like barrels.

I’m having him do Canebrake using the Colt ‘C’ on the dustcover of my Defender. He's also engraving 'Molon labe' on the barrel just under the rollmark.

A little off topic, when it's done with lasers, does it get hot? Could one do a heat treated knife blade without screwing with the temper of it?

The temps of the lasers vary, but when lasering metals (esp hardened), the metal is sprayed with a laser paint and the paint is essentially burnt. It will eventually rub off. Soft stuff (wood, plastic, etc.) lettering by laser won't rub off, because it burns the material.

Not the engraving Todd does, check out his site, see below.

Todd does laser engraving not laser etching. The engraving depth is 0.005” and up to 0.150” on 3D stuff.

This will not rub off.

I stand corrected. I would be concerned about temp with this method. Cool stuff.
