Default My Logo

So i've had a facebook page for quite sometime. I use it to promote my turnings and blank sales. I've wanted a logo for a while. So I had my brother work on one. Most of you know I'm a gearhead. So he went in that direction. What do you guys think?

Looks awesome, but keep in mind with the complexity of it you'll have a tuff time putting it on products for advertising in the future.

For me, it's a little hard to read. Especially at the size that would be commonly used.
The "E and B" are difficult to distinguish. Maybe change the font color and loose the drop shadow? Possibly add a contrasting stroke instead.
Maybe change the background opacity to about 50%, and convert it to black and white.

On the other fonts, maybe change the pt. size to a higher size, and reduce the stroke pt. size.
Could also add an edge effect.

These are just my opinions, and have no merit.
Ultimately, it's your design, and you should be pleased with whatever it is.

Purely constructive, from a former Sign Guy. A good logo has to be legible. If it doesn’t work in black and white firstly there will be times it won’t work at all. If you want to use it long term over any platform it needs to be simplified. Try printing it in b/w at business card size, hold it at arms length and see how it holds up.

I like the overall look. I do think the EB should have more contrast against the background.

I didn't look up your font, and I don't have your graphics, so I improvised.

This is close to what I had in mind, all though I only spent a few minutes creating it. It can be much better with more time invested.
