Keith Dubes, owner of Dube’s Custom Street Machines (Hudson New Hampshire), designs and builds custom show cars with the help of VisualCAD and VisualCAM software by MecSoft Corporation. Sometimes Keith even designs custom tools to help him accomplish even more from his CNC machines, like this custom designed RotoZip® engraving attachment. Keith says,
I could have designed a simple flat bracket but I wanted it to look good too – it looked so good when I was done, I didn’t want to get it dirty!
It’s still sitting in the house on Keith’s mantle. The images below show the custom designed RotoZip® engraving attachment bracket.
