You certainly can cut sheet brass with a Dremel, if you have a rotary saw bit for it. (Don't try to use one of the abrasive cutting wheels - it'll just clog up immediately.) But the Dremel is slow and finicky; the easiest way to cut thin sheet metal is with a pair of tin snips. A good investment. (A jigsaw works too, if you happen to have one.)

Ooo, thanks. I got the thing for Christmas from my dad but I honestly don't know all that much about it. I can use the engraving bit, but that's about it. I'm trying to get my dad to help me put together a tool set (with lots of pliers and screwdrivers and dangerous things), but he doesn't see the point of using good tools for little artsy stuff. . . yet Tongue

I've got lots of good ideas, signups need to hurry up and be over so I can get started! I really want to try some new things, such as the copper plating. The whole steampunk thing seems to bring out the inventor in me  Grin

Okay, I'm going to give in and sign up.  Cheesy
I've got a house to unclutter, and I need to get ready for the local scifi/geek con that's in early march, so I was going to resist joining any swaps. But this just looks like too much fun! Eh, who needs sleep. I have coffee.^^

Actually, doing this swap IS part of getting ready for your con. It'll put you in the right frame of mind at least, and might even result in something you can use for said con. So you're actually SAVING TIME by joining. Wink

Okay, who's next? Staar84! How come I don't see you signed up yet? WE NEED YOU!

Aah, the anticipation is growing! I'll need to find a place with internet over the week-end, because we are moving tomorrow and the company is only going to hook up our internet on Monday, and I'll want to know who my partner is before that. Really stoked for this swap!

Wulf, I like the way you think  Grin

I am excited about this group. We have an uneven number now, so if we don't get another signup, we will do some round robin type partnering. Also, did you all know that Naantje is planning a Steampunk wedding in September? How cool is that?

A round robin would be AWESOME! And a steampunk wedding would be so wickedly cool. This swap is going to be great with all of the people we have!
