Working on making some stuff for a show, and thought I would see if anyone wants something? Most are in the $30-$40 range. Depends on size and complexity of course.

I do this on the side at work. Trying to develop a branch off at work to be able to do this stuff during "slow" times since it is just laser and powder coating.

Pictures of some of the things I have done are attached. Going in tomorrow to cut some more stuff. I'm out of Belvidere, but will be in Bolingbrook on October 13 for this craft show.Name:  1173216714.jpeg

Absolutely.

Just bought a house in Indiana. Need something I can bend into a big porch light with the house address on it and now that I see your work, maybe a nice little picture too.

You also said powdercoat. Is it outdoor grade?

The powder coat is outdoor grade, yes. Eventually it can peel away and begin to rust the metal...but I have seen some stuff outside 10 years later and the powder coat is still holding up.

Thanks man! I didn't design most of them. There are some pretty great forums out there that I can hack together some stuff.

If someone wants an image made or something...or for the words, I will use Illustrator and then AutoCAD

Dunno your timeline, but if you find a picture of what you want, send it to me.

I'm driving in to Bolingbrook on Saturday. I won't be able to paint it that fast, but if you want it raw, I might be able to draw it tonight and cut it tomorrow.

If you want it unpainted, I can do really close to 5ft x 10ft...we can only powder coat like 84"x30" or something like that

Price will depend on size obviously. If it's too big, the outline will be somewhat flimsy, so take that into account.

I can throw a name attached to the front straight or something too

Those are really cool.
For a custom image, if I draw it in autocad would that help you out?

Yeah, that would help tons. As long as there is nothing funky in it for the laser program to read
