Metal Marathon *IMGS*
Posted By: Spartan Jag <>Date: 8/25/06 12:37 p.m.

Well, my dad works at a company that deals with extruding (cutting shapes out of) metal and we decided to get a little project going in our spare time on his trusty CNC machine...

It's made out of alluminium, and we didn't do much to polish it - just ran over it with some abrasive paper to clean it up a little before putting on some clear coat. Unfortunately, while it was drying in the garage, a fly or some insect walked all over it. You may not see it from the low-res picture, but it's not all smooth like it should be. :(

More to come - we're working on an HBO symbol and then we're moving onto some more complicated things... think a Halo scene engraved and preserved for all time... ;)
