Default Custom engraved 80% AR-15 lowers for sale.

I now have a fair supply of TM 80% lowers. I'm selling these 80% lowers for $150.00 each WITH all engraving included. Shipping is $10.00 extra for any number of lowers. California residents will need to add 7.5% sales tax (11.25).

Check out the photo gallery on my website for some recent engravings (Near the bottom). http://vadertactical.com/engraving-gallery/

I'm also happy to engrave your 80% lowers, BUT Please let me know what you have before sending it.

I need to address anodized lowers. Anodized lowers tend to chip out when engraving them. It’s not too bad mostly just a fuzzy edge but when lines run close together those fuzzy edges can overlap.

Consider this a disclaimer. I will engrave anodized 80% lowers, but I can’t be responsible for small chips and fizzy edges.

For engraving on your 80% lower (with NO work done) the price starts at $40.00 for engraving on one side of the magwell along with the selector engraving of your choice on one side. Extra engravings are $10.00 for the other side of the magwell, and $5.00 each for text on either side and/or the selector on the second side.
Shipping is $10.00 extra for any number of lowers, tax in included.

I have found that engraving with just about any bit leaves the edges of the engraving a little rough. A light sanding with fine sandpaper or a light bead blasting cleans this right up.

Check out my website;

http://www.VaderSpade.com

Below are some pictures I’ll be adding more as we go along.

Areas 5 & 6 will interfere with each other, if you want both 6 will need to be shortened.

Because sports logos are trademarked I can’t engrave them for profit. You can however put them on your own guns for your own use.

I hear what you're saying and it was just a quickie, and it's 3X4 inches. By the time I shrink it down to fit in the 1.4 inch area on the left side of a lower those lines will be getting in each others way.

I'm not a real expert on file types, so far I've only had a couple that would not work and my son was able to convert those, the higher the resolution the better.
Iím working with Vectricís VCarve pro 6.5, they may have something to say about what works best. I should know these things, and now that Iím getting good with the program I would probably pick up a lot of little details that were over my head when I started.

As long as no work has been done on your 80% lowers I can engrave them. Let me know what you want in a PM and we can work out the details. I would be happy to trade for a steel target or two.

So the flag was more of a challenge than I thought it would be. I couldn’t get clean vectors around the stars from any clip art, so I drew a flag from scratch. I think it turned out pretty good. It will engrave cleaner on aluminum.


I don’t have any jigs in stock right now, but I will carry them at some point.

Here's that 1 1/4 inch flag on aluminum. 1 1/4 inch is for the left side with a few lines of text under. The same flag for the right side is 1.7 inches.

Hey there, I've got a cad file lower that I have already pre-engraved and such, could you use this with your CNC machine? I can output pretty much any standard CAD format and send it off to you.

Just a idea, not trying to be a pain but thinking about stuff. How about every other stripe of the flag you run the mill over. So a blank line then a solid line, a blank line then a solid, and on and on. Ill take one plus the info needed like SN name ect.

I'll give that a try and post the results, but it may be a day or two. "EDIT" I was just working out the details on doing this and have figured out that it would require a tool change. Still doable but not something I'm going to tackle for a while. Those stars are SO SMALL that anything but a diamond tip just makes them look like blobs. Milling out a solid line would take a very small end mill. Very small end mills have notoriously shorts lives and they are not cheap. I would need to do the stars and the changes tools and do the strips, and that would require new G-code. Maybe at some point but I'm just too busy to figure it all out right now.

I have been very busy (that's a good thing) most orders are on their way. I have a few challenging pieces I'm working on, and I'm waiting on Real Small end mills for a couple of others.

I have made progress on the flag, the new bits I have on order will help. Here's where we are;

I'm trying to figure out how to get the program NOT to outline the white stripes. The outline makes the red stripes look bigger but without the outline the program will just fill the entire flag.
I will probably end up redrawing the entire flag and making the white strips bigger so the outlines blend. Lot's of work and probably a few do overs. Stay tuned.

Right now I'm working on a dragon and a fish. If I've missed anyone please send me a PM.
Quick, yours are shipping today.
