47a plaque

Postby R2Dan » Wed Oct 14, 2009 3:38 pm

Hey guys!

Last night I came up with a little design for a plaque to go with the upcoming 47a. I just fooled around a bit as I knew I'd want a plaque for it, and here's what I came up with:

Badger gave me his blessing to post this and see if there's any interest in having a small run of these.

I'm already talking to someone who could get this design printed for us on a metal plaque, roughly sized 3.5" x 1.5". I know I'll have one made, but I figured maybe some of you would be interested as well :) Updates on this (including price) will come soon! But they shouldn't be that expensive, around $10 to $15 I reckon.

You could try the method the DIY circuit board guys use, only I would use brass and not etch it all the way through. I'm pretty sure you can get the thin brass plate at most hardware stores, not too sure about the acid etch though. The most successful approach that I've seen is called the toner transfer method.

This is the first example that I found.

Normally I would be on that, because that's good work...

Only I have a presentation box from the Model 47 that I'm planning on using to display it.
May have been on the losin' side, still not convinced it was the wrong one.

How refreshing to see an apostrophe used correctly, for a change :D

Someone said they thought English was a relatively simple language as most spellings are pronounced the same way.

I wrote the following words down and asked him to say them aloud:

Bough,
Dough,
Tough,
Through,
Trough,
Thorough.
Though.

Yes, I'm a smartass, but what's the point of having an intellect if you can't make a total stranger feel like a complete Gonad once in a while..... :lol:
