Metal Engravings

Here are some examples of engraving non ferrous metals. The “Zippo” lighter was engraved using a small ball cutter. I think it gives a retro look to image and lettering. The second project was engraving aluminum tubing with a company logo, and a scale. This is part a industrial measuring tool.

The cutters used for the aluminum engraving are .005″ tip x 30Deg carbide tipped cutters.
