  1. @k scharf – ladyada welds, it would not be a halloween costume.

  2. @KScharf: I weld too, and I know many hackers who do ‘serious welding’.

    Regarding your faceplate, unless you’ve got experience doing casting, you might be in for disappointment. Sand casting is something it takes a lot of time to become good at, and nearly all castings require some machining to finish.

    To match the finish of something like a Niles you’d be better off just having the panel machined and finished by a professional shop. Provided you’re drawing is correct, it would save you considerable time and heartbreak in the long run.

  3. @K Scharf – I also weld, and I’m not just a ‘buggar artist’. It’s a good skill to have. :)

  4. Yes! Great SMAW welding sticker; now we need Oxy/acetylene, MIG, TIG, and Plasma!
