Builds: Cutting a logo into metal

• CATEGORIES: Builds

I am planning to do a section on mini jeeps from the 50s and 60s.  As I was searching for images, I ran across this very logical way of cutting out a logo from a thin plate of steel with some simple tools.  Of course, once I saw the pics, I thought, duh, that makes perfect sense, but for some reason, it didn’t occur to me to do it this way.  Now I know how I can make some “ewillys” plates that I could mount on the sides of the jeep.

I got these pics and idea from the Ranger Station.

You can see the logo in the middle of this image

The Logo was painted onto the steel

Then the logo was drilled

Then there were many hours of grinding according to the builder

And then, the thing that surprised me the most, was where the builder planned to use the logo.

    maybe in the 50s and 60s. now you cad and plasma/laser. the only difference will be the 100s of hours saved to drink beer and fish

    my motto, i only buy the best tools and if i can’t afford them, find someone who can. my point is many people have high end tools and a few hours searching will definitely save literally 100s of hours labor.

    I agree … I was just joking about the cost of a plasma/laser. Even if I had one I’d have to spend a bunch of time figuring out how to use it :-). Then, I’d have to find a place in my garage … I need to find me a big ol’ shop of some kind .. I need more room for more jeeps anyway 🙂
