    Default Engraving Project! Wade & Butcher Logo

    Ok, I know this wont raise too much interest, but I just wanted to share this. I've been working with an engraving machine for a few years due to work. Since I'm the curious sort, I like figuring out ways to make it do things the software doesn't plan on. So messing around with it today, I recreated the Wade and Butcher trademark. These are cut on a stainless plate with a black enamel topcoat.

    I'm considering doing this to the scales on a W&B Special that came with the plain black bakelites. The applications could possibly be widespread. Recreating vintage logos for engraving on anything that can fit in the machine might be pretty cool. Just a thought.

    Cheers,
    Aaron

    Cool. I like to make boxes. I would like to scrimshaw razor logos for the boxes that have different brands in them. They could be laid on top with fancy nails on my leather bound boxes, or inlaid in the case of my wood boxes. It's fun to bring different skill sets from different areas into out razor hobby. Those would work well as box "labels" too. I am always wanting to be more organized.

    What material are you using for the boxes? These could be engraved directly on the boxes, or onto brass plates, etc. Let me know if you have an interest in exploring that idea!

    I think you got something there. Very nice, I'm wondering if that technique can be used to inlay logos into razor scales.

    Most of my boxes are wood. Some of them have been leather over wood. Perhaps a wood box lid could be directly engraved. Maybe we can collaborate on project. I'll let you know the next time I do a box run.

    It most certainly can! Names, images, logos, custom script. You name it. I've even done pinball machine flippers for my friend.

    I would love to make this happen! I'll try to get some examples made and posted for you.

    Ok, RezDog. Take a look at this. Granted it's extremely quick and dirty, but I added a border to the original W&B trademark. This is engraved into a piece of mahogany, painted over with a flat black and then skim cut to remove the excess paint. You may be able to see bits of black that have soaked into the coarser grain, but there are ways around that.

    Let me know what you think!

    What brand of eng. machine are you running Chewie?? Your name Jimmy or stick with Chewie?

    Really like your logo work, will the machine do metals easily?

    Aaron, actually.

    I'm using the Roland EGX-350. I can do metals pretty easily. Brass I can do all day long. Aluminum is a bit tricky because of the metal's tendency to smear, but I'm admittedly using an extremely low grade of aluminum plate. Stainless takes a bit of work, but can be done. I haven't tried anything else.
