TAD OVALS and MOP - 10-02-2019, 09:47 AM

Crown Cue Cap for a collectors TAD.
Lots of small pieces and CNC work go into these designs.
One cuemaker told me "Any Monkey can press a button".
I was in the Jungle swinging by on a vine when I heard that.
Almost slammed into a Tree too.. Sheeees..

Guys, do not ask me for Cue Caps.
Only if I know you, AND, you got money ready.
And, no excuses to delay your actions. like Paying.
I am not in business
I am doing a favor for you by Making Cue Caps.
If someone was doing me a favor, I would do everything I can, to accommodate that guy doing me that favor.
But, this is not the way many see it.
Some see it as "another sucker born"..
I do not start work on people's Caps, till they pay in full.
Why?
Because, they need to keep their options open.

I just started a cap set without payment.
I got to take the lost now.
See how stupid I am. Why, because they are to busy .
Funny, in that, I am busy working on their caps.
2020 is going to be a great year for humans..
I got stiffed so many times before, I make rules to avoid all these things humans pull on others.
People, humans do the same things and say the same excuses to achieve their personal goals.
When time to pay, everybody has no Signal to send PayPal. Everybody busy. Everybody sick. Everybody everything. Humans are the smartest .
But,when time to get something free, they reply really fast.. I wonder why?

Have a nice Day

Alton < The most scammed guy on the world..

Engravings - 10-03-2019, 11:07 AM

1st.
Thanks for posting Ken and Chris.
Rex and Rhino, thanks for posting on my other post.

The creation of Engraving shapes, is not the same as making the Inlay piece, it's self.
A good example is Joel Hercek's 5 Diamonded "Slotted" Diamond.

Joel's slots are wider than the traditional slotted Diamonds.
It is his "signature" look/style.
When making the tool path for engraving Joel's Diamond, the diameter of the cutter is a critical dimension to be aware of.
We, as Humans, see the Inlay, inlayed into another piece/surface material/color.
When engraved, the outline/border that defines the shape, also determines the overall appearance, affecting our visual conception of the shape.
We are looking at the shape, but, the outline/border's inner section controls the actual shape we are "Looking for", but, the outer part of the border,
because of the diameter of the cutter, obliterates the wide slot that Joel intended to define "HIS" Slotted Diamond shape.
and, all along, still display the basic character of Joel's intent.
That border , or, diameter of the cutter, also determines how bold or fine that engraving will appear on the final piece.
A small diameter cutter would show a closer resemblance to Joel's intended design, but, the engraving would look lite, wispy, like fine lines with a fountain pen.
The larger diameter cutter would make the design look bolder and make a statement.

So, the drawing and calculating of the cutter diameter is critical when doing the tool path/ G Coding.
I do not use those "Engraving Bits" I use small endmills.
There is a difference.
Engraving bits are pointed. 30* 45* and 60* . The deeper you go, the thicker the lines.

This is the shaft side body. The tops are milled in what is called Crenellations



crenellation - a rampart built around the top of a castle with regular gaps for firing arrows or guns battlement, crenelation crenel,
crenelle - a notch or open space between two merlons in a crenelated battlement fortress, fort - a fortified defensive structure
