I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Very nice, John. You seem to be answering questions I've had in mind before I get a chance to ask anyone. This one is "Is that aluminum?" and "if so, did you make the blank, or find a place to buy them?". I have some ideas for aluminum belt buckles, and have been looking for some premade blanks to engrave. Thanks.

What Mike said.

But you should be able to find blank belt buckles. Ali Baba probably has them, but you have to order several hundred , or thousand. Keep digging.

Thanks, Mike. I've become so used to John's outstanding stuff that I thought that was the actual project.

Yeah, the huge amounts are all I've found so far. Not worth it to only make 3 or 4 gifts. Thanks.

Thanks, Mike. The ones I'm seeing so far say they're made of zinc alloy. I don't quite know what that is, but I'm thinking it wouldn't be suitable for cnc carving. Any idea?

Minor point, but Harp strings are almost always vertical, not diagonal.

Not Irish harps. Look at the Guinness label.
