    Always when I see something like that, I wonder how I could do it.<br>Please, could you describe somehow how I could achieve such results? <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> Of course if some expensive power tools are involved, then I'm out, but even in this case I would like to know..

    Thanx to all.<br>For the shape i used a saw,a grinder(Flex)and a metal file. Nothing special.<br>For the engraving i used a highspeed grinder from Proxxon with small drills.<br>And the special tool was a very quiet hand while milling it out and a lot of time.<br>And at last a very tolerant wife. So i can only say thanks to her.

    <div>Very nice! I thought that it was a self cast. I'm more impressed that you did it by hand.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    Sehr sehr geil geworden.<br>Absolut keine gravierte Optik, sieht fast aus wie mit dem Hammer getrieben oder eben gegossen.<br><br>Alu gießen macht schon Spaß, aber braucht Übung. Wir haben auf Arbeit nen Offen der bis 1200 Grad geht, damit hab ich mal mit Messing und Alu rumexperimentiert (Schlüsselanhänger in gefräste Formen gegossen)...nur Spielerei, ne Schleuder bekäme ich damit nicht hin, schon garnicht in eine Sandform.<br><br>Macht aber schon Spaß, grad mit Messing <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>Tolles Teil jedenfalls!
