    re-working a tombstone - finally

    We have a few factory made tombstones from a local shop that went out of business a 20 years ago or so. Finally getting one drilled with a decent pattern of holes..

    Have the tombstone mounted and trammed - now adding more holes!

    And this is what happens when you think you got all of the broken center drill out of the hole...

    hy, if you resurected that 20yo tombstone, give it also a nice hair-cut, you know, the trendy tombstone style; check attached

    i would preffer starting from the gothic style, and develop : for example, engrave a nice machining quote, like "be one with the mill", and some nice faces, not ghouls, because they don't have high vibration / kindly
