I have a request for plastic trail maps to be posted by the local trails folks on particularly confusing trails. They described a green plastic engraved sign which I interpret to mean using a fairly fine bit on a piece of plastic with a green surface but white/black laminated lower layers. Since this is all volunteer cheaper is better and the plastic materials appear none too cheap. http://www.bfplasticsinc.com/pc_product ... 11D4A0CA1C
If anybody has done something like this could you clue me in on:
- Best supplies/supplier
- Approriate tool(s)
- Best technique
Seems like I will have to use a pretty fine v-bit (1mm? 2mm?) to letter paths/roads.
