    Farm machinery? Loved it John!!!

    Some may associate it with the "night soil" they use as fertiliser (applied by hand) to their excellent crops. At least they mastered the "$hit in - quality out" conundrum - as did the Japanese - a true "recycle" and "waste not -want not" practice and philosophy.

    What about the "Lucky" or "Fukung/Fuking"? brands - were quite common tool names/brands when I was in the Far East - seem appropriate too?

    I know, I know, then people would suspect you of having a cheap Mainland Chinese product in your shop. I don't know the difference but I guess someone else would know.

    Golly, I guess we don't think INSIDE the Box, like you.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay, got distracted. Any vector format should be fine.

    As far as the application of the sticker it depends on if you want a decal or a paint mask. I might just cut a strip of aluminum that will fit into the opening and then just apply the sticker to that. If you want a paint mask you would just use the "negative" portion of the vinyl cutout (most likely).

    If you can give me dimensions on the opening I could just mail you the sticker and you can apply it however you want. If you want the choice of positive or negative I can cut out the sticker and include sheet of transfer paper. You just pick away the part of the sticker you don't want to use, apply the transfer paper and peel of the backing to expose the adhesive and stick it.

    Hey- thanks for the offer- I may take you up on that!

    What sort of file would you need? DXF? I can draw up the logo in a vector program like Adobe Illustrator (I'd need to use bezier curves).

    So, I guess the thing would be to first cut a strip with the rounded ends that fits in the recess. Then another that has the lettering that would adhere on top. Or, what would you suggest?

    I would either find an old scripted STUDEBAKER emblem or an old skool Craftsman
    logo. talk about confusing someone. But my favorite so far is the bilgeport.

    That being said, if you remove your enco tag 38cal, send it to me!
    Prolly wouldn't fit...my mill is flat where the plate goes, yours is rounded.

    Absolutely hilarious

    Got to be one of these.

    Salesman speaking to Homer Simpson in the TV shop... "Its a genuine Panaphonics Sir, or howsabout a Sorny?"

    Brilliant, I like the 'Bilgeport' idea as well, worth getting a non-BP just to badge-up like that
