I answered a PM about these but figured Id put it here as well.

yep  the plate is almost the same thickness as the original and is black aluminum.  The etching is the black burned away by laser.  Its maybe a few thousands thicker than the original plate.  I was going to use a bandsaw to cut it out but a dremel will work.  My plan is to trace the old one, tape off the face so I dont scratch it up and then cut it out.  I am going to hit mine with a few coats of clear coat rattle can just to keep it from scratching longer.

I also am planning on using glue or 3M 300LSE double sided transfer tape instead of the brad.  Wasnt sure really where to get the brad.

i saw that one when looking previously.  dont love it but it may have to do.  Or maybe Ill just go crazy and just cover the yokes in $100 bills.  I keep throwing them at it anyway lol.

I made these style Mooney Birds on a vinyl cutter.  And don't worry the screws on the camera holder have been replaced with thumb screws.  

If you want to have fun.  Make two templates out of Ply wood or pressboard. put the aluminum between the two haves.  Then use a router with a laminate flush cut bit to make a precision cut out.   you

i finally cut mine out.

I sent the rest off to you guys today.  Picking up another batch this week for the rest to send out.  been busy with not working :P

I did one with a jig saw an 32TPI blade.  Leaves a rough edge to be buffed/filed down.  Did one with metal shears, kind of curls the emblem some.  probably still usable.  Before I permanently mount it I think ill wait and see what you guys come up with and then send an extra plate to the guy with best one to cut out for me!!

good luck and post your pics!

He delivers! Talk about high quality. I'm trying to decide if I want to get my yokes refinished before I mount these bad boys! I think I'll find a CNC shop and see if I can't get these cut out nice. Thanks, turtle!!

That looks really good.  Scoring!!  I messed one up using pencil and then have to rub off the graphite.

Epoxy is also a great idea!

Glad it worked out

Hello Bob, Yes I had them powder coated after stripping down sand blasted and hand sanded smooth. Reassembled with next size taper pin and reinforced control shaft with internal brass busing epoxied in place and assembled wet. It will take another 49 years or so for the yokes to loosen again. There is a Mooney service bulletin on the subject I just went an extra bit. I signed it off in my maintenance logs I am an A&P, IA, Avionics person. ( Now if I can quit working on the aircraft maybe I can fly more often)...

Turtle, I like the one I got from you, appreciate you making these possible to get. I was wondering have you ever considered using the same triangle shape but using the modern logo? 

nope.  Old mooney means old logo ;)  

I can do what ever though.  Just need the vector art with a the negative print.

edit...  I just talked to my guy.  His engravers are running full speed right now so he's doing me a big favor and squeezing in a few plates for me so I wont have time until probably after xmas when it slows down for him to work on testing a new style logo.

Hot off the presses.  Just picked them up today.  Im heading out of town for 2 weeks so anybody that wants one send me a PM with your address.  They will be $20 shipped each.  Thats per emblem not per plate.  You are going to get one of the plates cut in half.  The emblem will need to be cut out of that.

paypal is solohelp@gmail.com

Due to some scumbaggery on mooneyspace they will need to be prepaid.
