Looking for something?

In Starndard

I am trying to find a good way to print out a part design and transfer it somewhat permanently on to sheet aluminum. This is until I can afford a desktop cnc, and would allow me to be a lot more precise in my hand fabrication of parts. Any ideas?

I’m going to try laser printing on glossy photo paper tomorrow, which then you use an iron to heat/press on to the metal, then soak the paper off in water. This is typically done on copper for etching, I am not sure if it will be as effective on the more porous aluminum however…
