Lodge Woggles from burntstuff.com
A leather woggle laser engraved with the Lodge name. You can also add Assistant Lodge Leader, Lodge Leader or Senior Patrol Leader to the Woggles (+10p).
Lodge Names are made larger or smaller to fit across the width of the woggle. Just enter the name you want in the text box (max 12 letters & spaces). Note, all engraving is done in CAPITALS.
These woggles are made from real leather and in a choice of colours. The engraving process which is carried out by a CO2 laser can leave a slight smoke dust residue. This is wiped off with a soft sponge, but there is a chance some dust may remain. The woggle is fastened with a rivet.
Quantity discounts available.
Making a Woggle
All woggles are made to order; I do not keep any stock. I try and keep a wide range of coloured leather in stock, but it’s possible that certain colours won’t be available at all times. I don’t make all colours available to all woggles, as some designs just won’t work with certain coloured leather. Leather is a natural product and some imperfections might be noticeable. I do check each woggle blank before it’s engraved to try and make sure only the best pieces are used.
Woggle blanks are cut out using a steel die and a clicker press, which uses 8 tonnes of pressure. To engrave the design into the leather, a design is first created on a computer using a variety of different software applications. The design is then imported into the program that controls the laser machine and final sizing, laser power and speed settings are made. Different coloured leathers often require different settings. The leather blank is held in place in a wooden jig inside the laser machine, then the design is sent from the computer to the laser which can take between 40 and 80 seconds to engrave, depending on the size of the woggle and the design being engraved.
Once finished the woggle has the soot residue wiped off with a damp sponge, some colours such as white and gloss colours require further cleaning with Isopropyl Alcohol to ensure the finished woggle looks its best. The woggle is fastened with a metal rivet.
