Mike writes – “In this article, Jeff Conner describes the process for creating brass nameplates from scratch. I’m restoring a 1942 South Bend Lathe and found the information particularly interesting as I’ve got a few tags that could stand being recreated, and a racecar that could stand a little custom nameplate work!”Link.

    I’ve considered using a Gocco machine to do this. Maybe I’ll give it a try and see how it works out.
