I will post a picture of the sign tomorrow. I finished it a while back. It turned out nice.

Is this the same for everyone or is there a way to use the mask with end mills so the mask isn't all torn up?

Thanks...
Depending on the End Mill cut... use a V-Bit before to just break the Mask surface. Anotherwords run an inside/Female 'cut' with a V-bit about ~1/16"

Then run your End Mill as you normally would.

Very nice sign, Seth. Im putting something like this on my ever growing list of Stinger projects. Looking forward to seeing the finished sign.
