Default Dash Emblem

A gentleman requested one of these for his completely redone Camaro.

We will see if he likes it.

Not the best photo, sorry.





Thanks for looking.

He really likes it. So much as he wants a set for the outside ground effects and bumper, made from aluminum and polished.

For perspective, the photo is close to actual size. It took a .03" end mill to cut the details. It came out perfect and clean.

I realize this isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoy making anything.

Thanks Charlie.

This was my first time using such a small end mill.
I've been reluctant to attempt using the small mills from a fear of breaking them. They aren't cheap.

I was amazed at how robust this little thing is, and the lateral force it could withstand. This is a step closer to incorporating this stuff into pens. Plus the fact of needing a fourth axis. I will definitely continue with some smaller stuff, now that I've overcome the fear of breaking the end mills.
