    Sneak Peak at AGD plaque

    6061 aluminum 1/4" x 6" x 9" (approx) cnc machined not laser engraved.
    The back will be machined so it can be hung on the wall.
    I will be donating some of the funds from each sold to the AO fund raiser.
    These plaques will come with Tom K's autograph.

    The powder coat would probably flake but one could anno it and then mill it and it should work.

    I thought about that too but it would indeed flake. I was thinking perhaps applying powder to the machined surface then removing the powder off the face leaving it in the groove, but that would be real tricky. Not sure how clean the finished product would be.

    Anno would actually work after machining. Anno the part then lay on a flat level surface, apply dye with a syringe into groove, rinse and seal...

    Guys, an anno guy should have no problem anodizing these. The "coloring" of the anodized part is just a dying process that can be controlled. The dye can be applied with a syringe into the groove so it can be a different color than the face.

    Sending you the plates before the engraving creates more work than you realize.

    I considered it earlier but opted not to; I guess it depends on the overall consensus. It's only money (yours ) right.

    It would shrink down but it's way too much detail to go that small I would think.

    I might be interested (pending price). I would prefer that they are not numbered. I'm not really into the whole small number (big wiener) contest.

    If there are 100 made and they're not numbered, then each one is 1 of 100 and there has to be a bit of history following them as to why/when they were made.

    If they are numbered, then whoever has an arbitrarily high number such as 83/100 seems to have a lesser valued plaque than the guy with 1/100 or 10/100.

    I'm for keeping them unnumbered. Adds to the mystique.
