    @Vegassparky made me this a while ago and I decided to stop hiding it on my bag and put it in the front pocket line up where it belongs!

    Had an hour in the shop today before picking up the kids. Had some copper pipe I replaced last year sitting out there. Figured I would give it a go. This is my first and second attempt.

    Thanks for the how to. After I get some silver solder I may try attaching some brass.

    Where does one obtain metal stamps to do the alphabet engraving?

    If there is a Harbor Freight near you they have a few different sizes at a very reasonable price. Otherwise many hardware stores will carry them.

    Also, many hobby, craft, and scrapbooking store have them, In fact, some of the scrapbooking store will have them in different typefaces.

    Hi all,

    What kind of metal drill bit is best for drilling thru copper? I have cobalt drill bits, but they seem to take forever for thick copper pieces.

    Thanks!

    The bits I use are nothing special. They are a Ryobi set from the home improvement store. They are gold colored and claim to be titanium coated for whatever that is worth.

    I generally go slowly to avoid burning them so I can't comment on the speed. Sorry I can't be of more help

    Thanks I am very happy with how things are coming. With a little help from people around here, yourself included (have no intention of changing that wallet until it falls apart on my great grandchildren). The axe is from TTPocketTools he has some pretty cool keychain bling sometimes.

    Thanks Brtsmpsn for the compliment on that wallet and I am glad you are still enjoying it.

    I just looked up TTpockettools and I had run across their stuff before but never really dug too deep. However, I just saw that pen they make and I am drooling over it. I think I have to have one :D. And I will be watching for another one of those axes too. They are definitely going in the bookmarks.
