    Hey guys,

    Started a new business in the new year and need to get some Brass CNC machined for our logo so that I can brand pieces.

    Anyone able to assist?

    Size would be around 2 inch * 2 inch

    Cheers

    Should have noted aluminium is fine, doesn't need to be brass.

    Sure have.

    I have access to a wax 3D printer and the ability to cast it in bronze. But due to fine text I’m not sure how it will come out. Can only try I guess :thumbup:

    The fine text might be a problem for me too....the smallest endmill i usually use is approx 0.4mm.

    Whole stamp is in a 50*50 envelope,

    I've decided to cut the website out to a seperate stamp which should allow me to have it either milled or cast relatively easily.

    to be fair this can now be closed.

    Brought a laser engraver instead after having 100+ pieces engraved in a 2 day period.

    Will shoot some through on arrival :thumbup:

    luckily for me that 100 pieces are the last order between now and may so I can get away with a bit of a wait.

    Laser is nothing special but will allow me to do logos and that’s all that it needs to for now. It’ll pay for itself pretty quickly and robot time is free after all. :lol:
