Work is progressing extremely slowly on the memorial sculpture. After designing the wings I was determined to have them cut by a local welding shop on their CNC plasma cutter. Gave them a JPEG of what I wanted and they were having a terrible time converting it to an .dxf file. Luckily, my welding class got a new plasma cutter just in time for the last two class dates- It was much more rewarding cutting the wings by hand then having someone else do it... felt like cheating. The cut is rough so I'll form them with a grinder before I weld them to the piston.
