Hello! Long time lurker first-time poster here. While I have been making things on my Glow forge for a bit now I have recently made a project, though simple, I thought was worth posting here.
I was recently able to present these knives to the latest group of Eagle Scouts to come out of Troop 1 in Flushing NY on the 110th birthday of the troop and the BSA as a whole.
Even though the laser can’t do much to the steel on its own when combined with a marking fluid it makes a great dark impression. For my project, I was using Enduramark’s Laser Marking Material.
After it’s painted on and left to dry for a bit the Glowforge can get to work.
After that’s done all that’s left to do is wash off the leftover marking fluid and polish the blade!
