Anyone willing to do a custom engraving job?

Hello,

I’m trying to validate the idea of engraving names onto a roughly 1.5 by 2 inch trimmer blade (https://getbevel.com/assets/products/t_blade/gallery/1-dc0c0c19598d42c35da607d3be574da766e979c9ff957ce75bd260b58e2aa60a.jpg). I can ship the couple blades to your location within the US. Ideally it would be shipped back in 2-3 days. The blades are stainless steel (i think. not sure).

If you’re interested, please email senthil@walkerandcobrands.com with cost and turn out time.

Appreciate it, thanks!

Senthil

I am probably the most experienced metal cutting Shapeoko uses (or top 3 users)…cutting blades are VERY hard, and not conducive to being cut with after heat treat…do yo know the hardness of these tools?

Laser engraving is a much better option for you…

@RichCournoyer is right. If the whole blade is hardened, it’ll be tough. If only the edge is hardened (plausible…)…might be different…

What about a diamond engraving drag bit? What are you trying to engrave? The flat surface looks small on the picture.

I might be willing to try with a spring loaded diamond drag bit.
