    You should see if Phil has the time, as he is really capable and I believe does some of the best work I've seen, even compared to companies that make panels. His user name is phil744 on the Forum.

    Hi Phil,

    I make my own panels (or at least attempt to) and I would be interested in any tips you have for engraving and backlighting. I have a small CNC machine, big enuff to cut all but MIPs, and I have so far cut out some FCU panels, one of which I have populated and is functional using IOCards.

    Currently the panel is unpainted. I printed a clear sticker on my ink jet and stuck it on until I get better at engraving. I made a few attempts but had the wrong bits for engraving, although even these failed attempts show the promise of what's possible with experience and the right tools. I primed and painted the front of the panel in Airbus gray, then engraved the legend. The result was a very good backlighting effect, but the bit and the wrong font combined to pretty much ruin the text. As soon as new bits arrive I will try again, what tips/advice could you offer up to a noob?

    Thanks,
