Re: King Tut and Nefertiti pyramid LED lamp

Thanks. I have 10 more Egyptian panels designed from Ptah to a scarab beetle to Isis. It actually looks better lit up live. Had to cut everything (3) times except Nefertiti due to engineering changes. Been a real challenge!

Re: King Tut and Nefertiti pyramid LED lamp

Got it painted and wired. The different fade and flash modes on the remote look real cool.

Dog B gone

I am looking for a robotic arm that I can program to follow heat or sound, nothing industrial. Basically looking for a small weatherproof machine. Thanks

Re: Log in issue

I had the same problem recently but seems to be working fine now. Does anyone have a problem with the back button not working. I have to scroll up and go back to the main menu. Only happens on this website.

King Tut and Nefertiti pyramid LED lamp

Cut this out of 14 gage. Took (72) 8-32 stainless steel button head screws and nuts to assemble. The insides will be covered in textured opaque plastic panels and wrapped in remote controlled LED lights when done. Hope to have it painted and wired this week. I'll post pics when its done and lit up. ...

Deck panels

Cut these out of 12 gage for my neighbors who just built a new house. Counter sunk all the holes for flat head screws. Off to my powder coater tomorrow to be painted in wrinkled black matte powder. They are 48" W x 32.25" H. I'll post pics when they get them mounted.

Re: Favorite program for editing DXF files?

Coreldraw x6 or x7 is decent. I got mine for $60 I really think torchmate cad is my favorite. Lite was around $250 If they still sell it. Full (with tracing and nesting) is $850ish Plus it does toolpaths too so no need for another software like sheetcam. I love my flashcut software but it won't wor...

Re: Stainless rusting...

Mr Hanks, McMaster Carr has SS S hooks https://www.mcmaster.com/#stainless-steel-s-hooks/=183i73p Also, when you weld or cut SS the heat can locally burn the nickel content out of the steel in the area of direct contact allowing it to rust....Pharmaceutical and food grade items are sometimes passiv...

Here are 2 pics of a front tag I cut from 304 stainless steel a few years ago. I could not figure out why it was rusting until reading on this forum that using the same grinding discs on carbon steel and stainless steel will penetrate the stainless steel and cause this. I have since stopped using th...

Thanks. There are too many to do so. Gotta be an easier way to share. Maybe make a web page and then post the link?

No problem! Maybe a little help for future work. When tracing an image with reflections and other undesirable details it is a good idea to edit the raster image first.
