Official update on me



Official update on me

Postby jwar » Fri Feb 10, 2017 8:56 pm

Hey all! I know I have this Shark Tank and barely use the damn thing, but some of you may be interested in what I have to say.

Tomorrow I will be purchasing a new laser system for etching.

What does this mean? Well it means, I will be doing acid etching. laser etching an perhaps a combination of the two as well.

The machine I am getting is NOT specifically made for metals. It can however work on anodized aluminum and baked enamel. So there will not be any black image engraved enclosures like I had previously offered. Honestly they were a huge ass waste of money and time, so I'm actually glad.

So that's a down side depending on how you look at it. I am looking at it with a positive mindset followed by lots of excitement.

I will also be able to etch wood, plastics, glass and numerous other items I couldn't do before.

Being able to etch wood and plastics means I will be able to etch you guitar, pickguards, picks, neck of the guitar...etc. Whatever!

Not sure on pricing for the non enclosure items yet, but I'll work it out once I get the machine in hand.

So pricing will vary but here's what I'm thinking.

*NOTE!* You must pay for all materials being used for your specific job. I do have some stuff on hand, but I do not figure it into the full price for book keeping reasons. I most likely will not charge for simple and cheap things like wiring and LED's UNLESS it's a large LED or a massive pain in the ass wiring job.

Laser pricing (all shipping is US only pricing. If you are overseas, we can work out a deal)-

Rehouses (standard easy reboxing)-$120 shipped
Single boxes-$25
Multi box deals-Anything over 5 will be $15 dollars a box. This price remains whether it's 6 boxes or a 100.


Acid etching-

Rehousing-same as above.
Single boxes-$35 shipped
Multi box deals-I will ONLY do 5-10 at a time. These are not cost or time effective in large runs, so if you want more than that, you're going to have to really convince me. $21 dollars per box.

All other items will have be figured out as I get used to doing them. I will be offering some free bees for those who are willing to let me test out my machine on their items. I will not replace any damaged items, so be 100% clear of that before you hit me up. Almost positive it will go off without a hitch. I'm mainly going to be wanting to experiment with woods.


Any questions, just ask away!!!

Thanks!!!

hahaha!

So here's so possibilities in the works!

Possible run with COG, Dwarfcraft and definitely Dr. Scientist. So those of you that have collected my stuff, look out for those!

I'm going to be hitting up a LOT of folks too. Animal Factory wants to do something with me, love that dude, but he's so damn far away. Maybe I can give him his boxes at NAMM....that's an idea.

You guys rock and getting the laser allows me to be more creative than a typical acid etch. I love acid etching, but it's super dangerous. You know?

As far as wood, I'm going to hopefully be working with a local artist, and it could be pretty interesting to say the least. I think you all will be pleasantly surprised. :)

Another update!!!


Alright folks!!! I am officially going to be back! Here's the gist of it.
Last year I had to sell my laser machine because I was going to move and didn't know how I'd take a 900lbs machine with me. I ended up not moving after the machine was sold. hah. So I've been waiting for the right time to re-purchase a machine, but a different one.
This new (it's used but whatever) machine is capable of doing everything I could not previously. Glass, ceramic, wood, plastic, rubber, tile, cork, acrylic, leather...etc. The thing I cannot do is metal. :( Nah just kidding, I can! LOL! There is a catch though. All metals must be anodized or enamel paint or something to that effect.
That mean that if you want a really, and I mean really cool looking pedal enclosure, you will have to pay the up-charge for a anodized box. Anyone that can send me to someone who sells anodized boxes for a good price (and I'm not talking about regular retailers here) will receive a lifetime discount. I'm not joking. Or if you do that yourself and want some discounts, hit me up. It's that valuable to me.
So what does this mean really?
Well it means I can now do anything from pickguards, picks, guitar straps or even actual guitars (not full coverage because of the risk involved). I can also do high quality band pictures on tile or stone, leather, family pictures...whatever. The sky is the limit. If you want a cool box made out of wood that has a killer original design, that is something that will be happening in the near future!!
For regular guitar boxes here's what you're looking at as an up-charge for anodizing unless I can find a better vendor.
It more than likely will be a 5-10 dollar up-charge. The only place that I know for certain who does this is Pedal Parts Plus. So again, hit me up if you have an in!
I can also engrave/etch through powder-coating and it will create a very cool effect. I'll be illustrating that in the next few weeks.
So not taking sales yet, but get ready folks!!!

I mentioned this in the ILF swag thread, but can you etch aluminum anodized knobs?
