I think smart-alecs are the most awesome type of people!
They look amazing! But is there any kind of rotational device used / needed for that?
I didn’t use the rotary for this since it was easily fitted on a 1/4" x 5" area. But yes, a rotary can etch all the way around designs.
I have a rolling pin just waiting to be etched with something all the way around… just haven’t decided on what…lol
You can go old school: “For when he comes home late!!”
Warning to all the "makers" out there
No date for when they took down the Thomas Smith?
I like the tarnish but didn’t know if it would impact the cermark marking down the road. I was thinking a clear coat might preserve the existing condition/character but prevent additional tarnishing.
Thanks for sharing!
An idea for etching the casings from a 21 gun salute…I would love to have had those in the case with the flag when my Dad passed.
I started to go there and then decided that might not be taken with the intended levity in this political and social climate.
Would have liked to have the ability to mark a casing with the young man’s name who was taking my daughter out.
Wouldn’t have to say a word, just show him the round with his name on it.
Excellent idea !!
If you’re sitting in the living room cleaning your gun when he comes over the first time you get to see what his mettle is if he comes over a second.
(DISCLAIMER: tongue in cheek - don’t try this at home…not politically correct…not encouraging irresponsible firearm handling…etc etc.)
i already have 3 Dads loving the idea and have orders!! lmao
My brother got me a blood red machete from the Dominican Republic. If I have a daughter, I’ll probably be sharpening that when she brings a boy home.
Pretty funny. We were some guy’s daughter’s boy she brought over at one time
Um, probably shouldn’t laser a live round though? Would that be a way to put a pass through in a basic?
Lol. Would probably void the warranty
My son on law makes his own bullets…I’m having him make some without the powder…so no blowing a hole in the laser casing no one will ever know they arent live ammo…
“This is in honor of the last boy who didn’t bring her home on time.”
You could always laser mark the casing, then load it with powder, bullet etc.
