    Hi All

    Is there a preferred type of brass for routering/engraving. I need to quote on about 60 plaques size 13 by 4 inches. They will need to be plated afterwards.

    Any advice is welcome.

    :thankyou:in advance.

    I'd love to hear how that goes. We have a CNC but always use Gemini for plaques. I've never thought of doing it ourselves. Please keep us updated.

    We do a lot of brass plates/plaques on the router and engraver.

    Cut them out and drill holes with the router, sometimes engrave them with the router as well as the engraver.

    "leaded" brass engraves MUCH nicer than regular brass, we find the regular stuff leaves burrs on the edges of the lettering on our rotary engraver.
