Cool. What's your method of printing and adhesion?

Shameless plug for blank stainless steel faceplates. Very Happy

Hmm, No worries about the shameless plug drew Wink

I was trying to find a place to get them printed directly on the metal. That turned out to be a PITA.

As it turns out, I forgot (and then remembered) that I have a friend that I think is going to be able to help me out. He can't do the direct to metal printing but he can make them as good (or better) than most other plates I've seen. I'm a little disappointed about the direct to metal printing, but... I have other more important things to worry about heh.

So from the looks of those plates you have a bit of experience with Faceplates.

You just mentioning it because of the plates? Or are you into the printing too?

I have no idea how to print a faceplate. I'm in metal working, drawing them up in CAD and sourcing the laser cutting of the faceplates was easy for me, I stalled at printing. I looked into anodizing and laser-etching, but that's expensive.

Oh, and by the way, they're aluminum, not stainless. Non ferrous either way. Wink

Here's the 1st prototype. Just to see what it looks like as a trial. Def not a finished product. It's not quite aligned correctly. Still in progress.

Considering it. It depends on the level of interest.

Here's one I'm working on to go on the VybeDeluxe.

So I'm not really happy with the design of this one. Ive actually already designed a better one but this is the one I had made up.

It's also not entirely straight.



Good/Bad?
