Stuffing around with off cuts...

Post  Ross. on Mon 16 Jul 2012, 3:11 pm

I have little off cuts of tread plate laying around on the floor. Sick of tripping over them. Picked them up and made some key rings out of them.

Dremel, spray paint, rub back and they are as "rough as guts".

I recon you could sell them Ross. They have a certain " rough edge, artsy look " about them. But I'm affraid I would not have one dinging about on top of my Yoke.

I meant my engraving skills. I am using a very heavy dremel with a tiny grinding bit. Plus wearing multi-focals does not help me to see what i am doing up close.

I like the "rough as guts" look too.

I reckon you wont be able to keep up with orders if you post them on ebay. They'd sell that quick!
