    Here is a clip of the rotary engraving process I did on stripped lower. Only a clip cause the run time was almost 20 minutes. Typically I would use my laser engraver, but on this build I am going to be sending my lower off to WMD to have it nickel boron coated. So the long and the short of it is I need to have the engraving down into the surface of the aluminum. Should look pretty sweet when it is all finished.

    What it should look like after coating. This is a scrap of aluminum that I engraved and painted for effect.

    ....and the finished product.

    I'm curious to know what y'all think about this one.

    Going into business? I own and operate an engraving business in Lubbock, TX. So I have the cool tools for a reason. But it does make customizing my builds a lot easier! And cheaper for that matter!

    Here's a before and after pic. I went back into the office this evening and decided to engrave the caliber on it. I really like how it turned out. Now all I gotta do is gather up all of the parts that will receive the NiB-X treatment and get them sent to WMD.

    I will post more pictures as they become available. Some customers do not want pictures of their stuff online. Let me know what you are looking for and I can do a mock up for you.

    Perhaps you would be interested in something like this?
