  • Coca Cola plaque

    Hello all,
    A co-worker of mine ask me to make a Coca Cola plaque for a relative who is retiring after 30 years of working there. I got the logo from the internet and made my own pattern. Because of the copywrite laws I cannot post the pattern but here is the finished work. It is made from 1/4" birch plywood and has a 1/8" backer and is 14 1/2" wide. I primed and painted it the color of the logo. To make the words fit more snugly, I used a puzzle blade. Thanks for looking.

      Well done. With copyright laws, how are you able to make it and give it away? Just wondering! Don

        Don,
        Since it is a gift the company would be hard pressed to show damages. The most they could hope for is a letter of cease and desist & Mark is already complying with that, it is a one time gift. I would not be too concerned so long as he does not try to mass produce or sell/share the pattern.

            I don't think Coke is going to issue a cease and desist order for a retirement for one of their employees. I would recommend you contact Coke about possibly doing that for future retirements - may make some money.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

              by Bill Wilson
              I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

              Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

              And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

              Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
