Makin' Stuff

Makin' stuff out of scrap is cool. Unless of course, you suck at it like me. Made a point cover from a piece of scrap aluminum plate in the metal scrap pile. Not bad for a first attempt. Slipped a couple times while engraving it, and there were some pretty deep pits that I couldn't sand out. I know better for next time though.

You try any etching yet? I saw where someone used muriatic acid to etch aluminum...

I been slacking on the etching. I've been to lazy to get the supplies, but it's definitely something I'm going to try.... when I get off my duff.

I will not fall for that "Come up and see my etchings" line of yours.....again.
