    The front cover will just hang over the front like many of the real CNC Bridgeports do.

    Looking great. Did you buy the blank tag material already made up or did you have to stick layers together? Can you let me know what the material is and where you got it? Thanks

    I got it from here https://hindleys.com/index.php/ Its 1.5mm black-white-black engraving plastic, 600x300 sheet, 14 delivered.

    First time i've used it and came out perfect, used a 30deg engraving tool, 0.2mm tip, 24000rpm, 900mm/min, air blast only and used an Aspire V-Carve path. Outer edges were cut with a 2mm single flute carbide bit with 6mm x 0.6mm tabs.

    I'm going to need some of that plastic soon - good to see a source of smaller pieces at not-too-unreasonable prices. An 8x4 sheet would last me quite a long time...
