Well I got ambitious the last two days, and finished up these three new Plexi Cubes. As you can see in my really poor pictures, only one has a self lighting gas vial inserted. This is only because I haven't done the complete install with the Norland 61 epoxy yet. I know, I'm lazy.
So here are the specifics,
1.000" square Plexiglass, with .750 diameter X .125 wide slots milled on all six sides leaving a .500 diameter boss in each. This leaves us with two separate pieces, the outside square and the inside six bosses being the other. In addition I milled my makers mark on one boss, drilled, and reamed another to accept a 2 mm X 12. 5 mm self lighting gas vial. I also added a 45 degree chamfer to all of the sharp edges.
Whew, is that a detailed enough description for ya?
Once again the pics don't do these justice.
Thanks for looking, Kenn

"Lanyard Spur"

I had a small piece left from a bar end the last time I made some Cubes, so I put it aside for awhile.
Finally got an idea as to what to do with it, and here it is.
I'm calling it a "Lanyard Spur"
It's 1.00 across the star points X .201 thick, with a .250 diameter thru hole.
Let me know what you all think, should I make more?
Red Brass?
Titanium? Oh yeah I got Titanium....hehehe.
Thanks for looking,
