Re: MAKING BADGES

I'm guessing that, if you have an L-120 emblem to go with the L-110 emblem, theoretically you COULD produce that elusive "L-112" emblem...

HMMMMMMM........

B72. I would bet on you being able to do a really great job with emblem casting. I get the impression that you ae a details man.

Re: MAKING BADGES

If I can get to where my shoulder's healthy again after the rotator cuff surgery, I'll be able to get something done...I hope. The emblem video I was able to glance at this morning at work, but it uses too much data to watch 'em on my phone.

But I'm going to see what I can do for casting some emblems. I'm not much at videos, but I can sure take some photos as I go.

My printer fritzed up, so my speedo face project is on hold until I get that worked out. But when I do, there will be pix.

Re: MAKING BADGES

I have some reservations about seeing pix of Speedos on your face!

Oh, sorry. You mean pix of your speedometer face. Whew! I can probably handle that. When you live in Florida, you're a bit cautious when folks mention speedo ........ anything.

"BADGES? We need some steenkeen badges"

All of the complicated procedures to make any badge or shape has changed with the advent of inexpensive 3D printing. My daughter teaches robotics, coding. She is going to buy a 3D printer and I am going to pay 1/2 of the cost. She offered teach me how to print Old IHC badges and hubcaps for wheels.
