    Some weeks ago, i saw this link about "make your own brass plate" on this JJ thread from Ryan: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/?p=293

    So, a few day ago, after buying all the stuff, I've made my first try:
    1/a fake ID plate for my modified project
    2/a plate for a french message board (where I'm a moderator)

    That technique is pretty simple, and the results are great !
    I've have some kool ideas for the next steps...

    I just checked out Bielle Chaude--who knew there was a French HAMB?? That's pretty interesting, even if I can't understand a thing!

    Why do I think making the plaque is the easy part...coming up with a beautiful design as you did is the hard part. IMHO They look great!!

    After reading Ryan's article, I did this plate for my 1950 Atlas Lathe:

    if you wanna understand it, copy and paste the URL of the site you want translated (www.rods-customs.com/forum/ in this case), then go to this site, paste it, select french to english, and it translates it.
