Nicely done!

There are a couple of really great things about engraving in aluminum:

1. It is much more durable than wood.
2. Chipout is not an issue.

I have been experimenting with polishing using a felt bob on the foredom handpiece and various compounds, starting to get some good results.

Curious if anyone else thinks that cutting the more expensive 2024 seems to work better? Occasionally I stumble across a scrap piece at the local junkyard and always snatch it up.

The other thing is that I have been using engraving bits rather than ball noses, seems to be working fairly well for me so far.
