The initial cut wasn't too bad. I made sure to leave lots of material to work with.
I then used a grinding bit and file to start making shape of the tip.
It's really starting to take shape here
At this point the tip is a bit long, but it works just as great as the original. I was really wanting to makemit personable to me, so I started making some shapes, and added a top hat in inspiration of Mad Hatter Labs.
At this point I was pretty happy. When originally starting with the banding it was .031 thick with coating, and I was able to bring it to .026 which allowed for clean movements.
The finished product is something I am proud of. After letting the paint dry I have been successful in picking and raking features this design.
My running time on fabricating this was approximately 2 hours. There was a lot of visualizing and believe I can shorten the fabrication time greatly with my next pick.
Over all, very happy with the outcome and performance of this pick
