    Keep at it man. The best part is the discovery of the metal, the reaction to heat and chemicals and ultimately, your creativity. Keep posting.

    I keep seeing all these cool tags. I need to get one. I wouldn't mind trying to make some. Do you use the same stamps you would for leather?

    Do to use leather stamps on metal. You will ruin the leather stamps. The metal used for leather stamps are not as hard as the metal used to stamp metal. You need metal stamps to make the tags.

    So today I am working and my best gal is home with the flu. This thread gave me a great idea to cheer her up. Now keep in mind I am an electrician not an artist.....

    .....spent 20 mins of my lunch break and created something out of scrap. Come to think of it she did the same thing with my life!

    There won't be a more intensely sought piece of metal anywhere this year, including Sochi.

    My 13 year old son and I enjoy shooting precision air rifles. He started at age 7 with a Red Ryder at 10 yards and has developed into a pretty darn good shot. These days during the more accommodating weather of every season but winter, we have a habit of spending some time at the range every week. We generally shoot from benches at 50 yards.

    Each session ends with a competition, usually 25 shots each, taken in 5 rounds of 5, alternating shooters. The usual targets are our bell target or our SteelPlinkers Quadrant Target

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    The Quadrant has a 1" bull and the bell target is a 3/4" bull.

    The competition gets pretty intense and generally the margin of victory is pretty slim, a couple of shots is pretty common, and the dang kid wins too often ;^)

    This year, the winner will win custody of the Champ medal until the next week, and then it is back up for grabs

    Thanks guys. We have a lot of fun together. Ribbing each other about who owns the medal each week should be fun.

    Thank you. It really isn't that difficult and it doesn't require too much talent or I wouldn't be doing it!
