    The Story:

    I went to work tonight and there was nothing to do at all. So I decided I was going to cut something with the laser. After AutoCading a few swords and cutting them (which I will photograph and post when they are all done) I decided I needed a sign. So I thought "I end up thinking about TPF at work more often then other things" so I decided to cut a TPF sign out of metal.

    The Result:

    A sad state of offairs when you think about TPF more than other things at work.

    Cool. What kind of steel?

    I would put a 140grit flap disc on an angle grinder and give it some texture. You know, swirly marks.:)

    It is 12g (.1 in thick) cold rolled mild steel. I used an 80 grit for this one, but i think I larger grit would give it a cool look indeed.

    One thing I was actually thinking of was that design in key chain form, I think it would be cool.

    Keychains would be cool, I drew them up today, and they look pretty cool. Here is the design. The units are in inches.
