As I traced out the badges to make by hand, I posted this on Mnpctech Group on facebook ...."Sometimes when I use a CNC mill to make something, people say "I wanna see you use a Dremel" ...then when I do make something with a Dremel "How come you're not using CNC mill?" ...You can never please everyone..lol.
