New Followers with Logos
« on: January 09, 2009, 11:46:08 PM »
Here are the new followers I made for my new 10" mold. One is my name as before but bigger as the mold is bigger and the other is the Bee logo I drew for my Mead 20 years ago, so it's kind of a trade mark for me on anything I make that gets consumed. It should come out pretty cool.

Thanks, I'll post more pics of the cheese with the impression in it.

I like the bee.  I have thought of incorporating one into my mead labels somehow too.
I also, when I do my embroidery include a couple of insects as my "signature mark" and usually it is a bee or a dragonfly.  Great minds think alike hey!!   :D

I posted the pics in the Parmesan section under my 15 gal post. I could do a brand as well, but that would be a lot of machining.

Carter,
What CNC machine do you use?
My brother repairs CNC machines for a living as well as writes programming for the operation.
His speciality is Cincinatti Milacron.
He has travelled all over North America doing repairs on these machines and seems to be in great demand because of his knowledge. Most of his work is done for DANA Corp. but he also does a little freelance work as well.
I on the other hand struggle to even spell CNC correctly.

Yes I did, it took a while, I'm not trying to be modest (god knows) but I actually amazed myself as it's accurate to .0001. The only reason I was surprised is that I didn't spend $5000 on bearings. I spent about $3000 total for the whole machine, or best guess as it took me about 1 year to get the parts and then get motivated to build it. I had to figure out all the electronics and machine all the parts. Luckily I already had a machine shop so I had the tools.

Carter, I'm sure you've seen these from Parmigiano-Reggiano but they are doing something similar except in the sides of the cheese.  I found it interesting that they did utilize some sort of removable and updatable numbering system.  Just thought you'd like to see it.  Parmigiano-Reggiano

Hopefully going to embark on my first Parmesan tomorrow with 4 gallons of raw milk (2 skimmed and 2 whole).  I'm going to have to get creative with a mold though - maybe an ice cream pail or something....

Very interesting. How in the world did you find this?

Carter, I thought you might find that interesting..

I stumbled on it in a wiki about Parmesan when I was doing a little research prior to my attempt at making some today.

Parmigiano-Reggiano wiki

Under external links at the bottom of the Wiki page there is a video link and links to the main site.
