Thanks

This is prior to converting to cut paths so it should show up as just single set of lines with no lead ins unless the software your using automatically converts it to a cut path.

Amazon. Not that expensive considering the time it saves. I have not shopped around so likely can get better deal.

Re: USN 2 layer 5 piece Commerative / Memorial with Candy Finish

They work great. I just throw them on strategically. Like on this one I placed them on back of the ring with lettering and the USN and then assemble. No glue or anything like that however I have used JB Weld on one side of some larger pieces so magnets stay in place on one piece. Hold piece and give...

Re: Convincing Curved Rope

Well the rope will be cut into a piece of steal so I guess that would be a negative. So the edges and the line that represents the twist would be cut out. I ended up making something that will work but now I want try and make a rope with two loops and loose end hanging.

Convincing Curved Rope

Been trying for hours to make a segment or curved rope but cannot seem to pull it off. Any help appreciated. Just need an S shaped segment of rope to use as accents under text. Seems like it would be simple but I just cannot make one that looks convincing.

Re: Navy Anchor

Cleaned it up and it cut great. This is a dual layer commemorative piece I made for someone retiring. All will be ground to a shiny finish. Back layer will be candy gold, front ring will be candy blue, USN will be just shiny silver and all will get 2K Clear Coat.

I found the 3/16" to be too heavy. Its a break down so obviously meant to be portable. Being jeep shaped its likely geared at off roaders. Granted most JK owners are mall crawlers and will likely use this grill the one time a year they accidentally go off road ;) On the other hand I wheel ever...

Re: TATTERED AMERICAN FLAG

Someone asked about how I did the standoff hangers but the PM would not let me attach file extension jpg ? Anyway I cut D Ring shaped hangars about 1" x 1" . Flat part is welded to back of flag so hangar is sticking straight out. 2 hangars .. 16" center.
