The Plates

To put the details on to the dial, name plate & coin slot, I have done the following:

Polished the metal, using a fibre mop & bench motor.

Got rid of all grease on the surfaces by using thinners.

Sprayed two coats of primer.

Sprayed four coats of black spray paint.

Leave over night to dry properly.

Etch the information into the plates using a lasercutter - speed 35, power 100.

Rub off any remaining primer using steel wool.

Polish the metal using silver polish.
