Just finished this one. Carving through powder coating works pretty well.

Joe,


Thats Bronze? How does it cut? I've cut Brass & SS. Boss was asking me
the other day about it. What grade is it?


Lol... thanks for the poptart reminder.... there's one left.

Bronze cuts just like aluminum without the heat. No idea the grade, he brings me scrap pieces to play with.
Do you butter your pop tarts? 🙂

Hmmm, Butter? ... nah, just a lil heat and glass of mooo.


Too bad they're cheapin out also like Dunkin' Donuts w/ the filling.
Eventually you may have to buy a separate 'filling' package.


Good to hear about the Bronze. Will have to try it.

I really enjoy seeing your bronze machined pieces! I need to make some pet memorials, so I may give it a try soon.

Joe you are having too much fun playing with all the different materials. Have you found anything that you have not been able to carve yet?

Great carvings as always.

Thanks, I'd say 6061 aluminum has been the most difficult (so far). It gets so hot and gummy, I just need to up the feed rate but I moved on to bronze before getting it dialed in. Granite was a big mess with all the muddy water but easy to cut. I guess steel is my next hurdle. It's just not as intriguing since my son got his plasma table but Tony makes it look interesting.
