Other than what is in the above post?

Just picked up the black painted brass sheet from a local trophy shop. Then used the setting above. Washed the soot off with hot soapy water.

Thanks guys. My day job, side job, and family and hobbies mean very little time to come to the forums. Being busy is a good thing right?

I have started making these reloading blocks on my CNC. A customer wanted a custom look. So I laser engraved it for him.

I etched a brass plate for a military gift I made. This was 2 passes at 1500mm 0.15 res and full power 2.5 MW laser. It left soot on top a little hot soapy water and this is what I had.

Good looking results. I have not tried bamboo again. Maybe I will give it a go soon.

thanks guys. I'm now using a stamp, after I cut the second one out. This saves ton of time. It did use the laser to engrave it.

I did try out the stamp. As you can see I forgot to flip the image. This was at three passes at 1500MM 0.1 res and full power on my 2.5MW laser. I could have gone 4 0r 5 passes as with 3 it was a little shallow. It do like the detail that I got out of it though. This is the speedball material found at Michaels craft store.

On a side note, I used to hate going to those places. Now my wife hates for me to go with her, because I find stuff to work on with either the laser or my cnc router.

I am now engraving my shop logo onto the backs of my products. A way to combine my CNC Router and my 2.5mW laser.

Has anyone tried doing engraved rubber stamps? Found this on Amazon.

No response here. Since it was semi-time sensitive, I ordered it from 3D Hubs.

I forget if it was 230 or 255 in power. Speed was 2000mm/min if I remember. Resolution was 0.125

Here is a board I did with varying results on different shades of bamboo.

The burn is different on differing types/colors of bamboo. The darker colors seem to burn better. As far as smoke; yes there is a good bit but not a lot. Usually one pass is sufficient.

I have an item I need printed. It is a spindle mount adapter. Is there someone that can prints two of these for me? I will of course pay. I priced them on Shapeways, it was pricey. Please let me know.
