Yes you are !
@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!
Experimenting with the drill and a mini torch.
Not sure where I am going from here with this one....
Now isn't that just super cool!! It immediately reminds me of something I saw in an Art museum. Nice Job!
Made these today. Double sided.
Very cool thread !!
I am going to try my hand at making some keychain tags..
The gloved ones are killer shots ! Awesome!
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.
Great work.... beautiful stuff here!
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.
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
My first tag arrived today thanks to @vegassprky.
Better pic of the tag.
Just read through the thread. Some amazing pieces here.
Sweet tag. I also dig that mini axe!
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.
I picked up this old copper plate for $5 , I used it for keytags.
I made one for myself and the wife today.
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 . And I will be watching for another one of those axes too. They are definitely going in the bookmarks.
