NOC, at least you can tell that is a awesome slinger. He is fat and must be a good hunter.  Grin

A good logo should be uniquely recognizable even when very small and at low resolutions.

CA, you’d better hope that I don’t get your name for SITH... I’ll laser engrave a poo emoji on your sling instead!

I may have found a better way to use my laser engraver. It is just ok when I burn leather directly, but I  have a ton of live oak in a burn pile in my yard, and that engraves beautifully because it has such a tight grain. Stay tuned... I hope to post some images of a logo embossed in leather using an oak stamp as soon as I get the burn parameters right for the oak.

Ok, I tried the live oak as both an embosser and as an ink stamp. Results were not too bad.

lol - apologise for not saying - the sling arrived.

found the engraving - it really is tiny Smiley What engraver are you using ?

I wondered why it had a poo emoji on it Smiley

Great sling, going to try the shrinkwrap plastic sleeving.
I'll get pics up soon Smiley


with the embossing wondering if it might be better to do a positive and negative image and have them either side of the leather and then clamp.

I like the idea of a positive and negative for embossing. That would probably help. Thanks!

Also, the old used couch leather seems to hate being embossed. I tried it on other leathers and the embossing took a little better, but the laser cut logo details definitely need to be taller too.

My laser is a $90 Supercarver.  It’ll cut an area about 1.5”x1.5”. It’s not a good laser, but it was cheap and portable... also extremely dangerous for your eyes if you aren’t careful!  I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who is looking for a laser engraver.

I was wondering if your sling would show up soon. I am a man of my word  Grin
By the way, I will send you one without the poo emoji too Smiley
I have made a few improvements to the design in the last month.

If you use electronics heat shrink on the cords, I’d recommend either getting the stuff with adhesive lining, or, what I’ve found works just as well is normal heat shrink plus a little hot melt glue.

Use at least 3/4” long pieces of heat shrink. Any shorter and it may not hold for long.
