    New Bedford Historic District Sign

    I am in process of making a sign that will be mounted in a VERY historic Whaling district in New Bedford. This is a very prestigious placement of a sign for me. The sign needed to be approved by the historic district committee. For me - this is a BIG BIG deal.

    I have ordered and recieved the gold paint

    I ordered heavy duty "Z" channel for mounting - similar to a french cleat.

    Tomorrow I will order the Black Glass Osmalto - for the textured background

    I bought way more HDU than I need.

    One thing about a job like this is that it pays for me to stock my supply shed.

    I bought 4'x8' x 2" thick 18 pound SignFoam4 HDU

    I bought 4'x8' x 1.5" thick 18 pound SignFoam4 HDU

    I bought 4'x8' x 1/4" thick Alumalite panel

    Price tag on the HDU and Alumalite - $1018.00

    This is one reason I do this - cause I cannot afford the stuff I like to play with - besides it's a blast making the sign anyway.

    THAT is beyond cool, Leo! Congrats on getting the gig, I'm sure you will nail it. You'd better watch out...this whole sign thing may turn into a real moneymaker for you.

    I'm looking forward to watching it come along.

    Not forgotten,

    I have been extremely busy last couple of weeks.

    The New Bedford Sign had 48 seperate tool path programs that needed to be run.
    Have run 85% of the toolpaths at this time.
    What an Adventure.
    LOTS of learning - for me.
    LOTS of new stuff for me.

    I have cut out all three hummingbird plaques and they are in process.

    I had to change a starter in my Ford and do brakes.

    My riding mower needed repairs

    My son's wife gave birth to their 3-rd in CT and we went down there for a visit.

    I took my wife and granddaughter out on a Whale watch on Stelwagen bank

    There has just been no time for video editing or picture updates

    BUT - I WILL - bring this back on track
