to which I am looking to cut the lettering out of the metal. I am curious what tools would work for this? The metal itself isn't too think, but is thicker than a normal piece of sheet metal.
I have seen a few metal cutting tools, such as snips and nibblers, but they cut through the metal to get to their point of interest, which I only want the lettering to be cut. I have also read that laser/water-cutting nozzles can get caught in stamped grooves, which could damage the nozzles, so that option is out.
I originally was looking to get one of these tools
and try to shave off little bits of metal alone the way. This would be the most tedious, but would probably produce great results (I hope).
I am curious if anyone have any recommendations on what tool would be useful for my needs? I think the grooves would provide good support for this tool so it wont cause mistakes, and I think that since it's stamped, it should be easier to cut through?
I also am looking to provide additional lettering (non-stamped) and curious if this tool would work if I had some sort of stencil/guide as well?
