i finall got around to cutting one of these.i think i put too much detail into it!the engraving bit is very delicate and this ran about 5 hrs in the cnc.i had to keep the rpm way up and the feed very low.

Unless he cuts down on the detail, or makes a mold to cast them, 10 hours for a pair is going to be rather spendy for that kind of time on a CNC cutter.


But I really do like them.

Wonder what a set of pie pans would cost to make. Now that would really be sweet.

Question

I wish I had a set to get the dimensions from for you. I'd love a set of pie pans. Anyone out there have the dimensions for the pie pans???

i cut another one of these last night. i did sort of a negative of the original where as everything on the indian head that was down i now made raised. if i dont get so picky and as much of a perfectionist i know i can make this way faster. this one took about 3 hrs. i still have to do a second op and face the bach off but that is fast and easy. the tool im using is a 30 deg engraver with about a .003 rad on the tip.if i went to somethind a little bigger i could cut the time way down.i also have other indian heads and of course the original one too.

With a bit more effort and cost than it takes to cut two pie pans, one could make a press tool that would be capable of reproducing many originals.

Pie pans with some kind of logo would be super cool, but would have to put them on with anti-theft screws.

Think it might be an idea to cut a true negative of your design, to use as a wax core mold to do an investment casting run of the design, quality of the parts would be a little down from your machined version, but part costs would be way down from vs. 3 hrs of machine time/part.

On your design I like it !!

Sid--check at wally world--I saw a shirt in the 6.00 range that had the skull setup on it. Might work for you as another option.
