Picture, if you will, 'Doc' from 'Back to the Future' standing over his modified 9 x 20 lathe exclaming "This baby is wired for a Million Gigawatts!"   :lol:

Ya I know it's not a logo, just had to share the thought.

Bumping this one up again as I found a Youtube piece on the non-round gears I talked about earlier. They were used as the intro to the Swedish TV program "Tekniskt magasin" a technically popularized show describing  all storts of technical inventions and contraptions.

Hope this gives an idea of a quite nice gear solution.

I am wondering what happened, seems to have died.  :Doh:
I think a logo would be nice.  :thumbup: We just need one that's all  :poke:

Well.. I got the icon going a few weeks back. Working on the logo as I have time (which isn't much!)  :Doh:

Eric, what size (pixels) are you looking for in the logo? There's a reason why I ask.  :thumbup:

Good question Trout  :beer:  I know to.  :thumbup:  I'm out.

Good luck.  You can do it.  There is a lotr of fun stuff now but it will settle down and I hope they get the rules and specific requirements down pretty soon.

I never noticed the top right of the forum before Eric.

I am not 100% sure Dennis... I will have to look it up. Basically, I want to replace where it says "simple machine forums" in the upper right.

I was thinking of something along the lines of the favicon geared "M" with the rest in a cool script

First Pass. Font can change, obviously. I know it's not like the favicon but I worked it up before I asked.  :hammer:

Yep, I quite like it,

Just a thought

You mean "madmodder" in the caliper instead of just "mad"?

Either way... I think would look good.

Eric,

That's correct but it should be spelled correctly "MadModder" - with the two capital M's.

May be Dennis could make it look a bit squashed or something ???

You have a very nice talent there Dennis  :bow: :bow: :bow:

Thanks guys. I'll work on it a little tonight and come up a few variations. I'm thinking the whole title within the calipers might spread the jaws so far apart they may not look like calipers anymore but we'll see.

Eric, of course you can use anything I toss out.

Thanks Dennis!

Maybe raise the "Modder" part up so it is inline with "Mad" while keeping Mad in the calipers?  :scratch:

Here's a few more. I think the whole name fitting into the calipers turned out better than I first thought it would. Eric didn't see your latest until I uploaded this. Let me know if you would still like to see that.

Dam clever that Trout. I honestly think either of the top two would be good. Proper english as opposed to chinglish would dictate two words as the use of the capitals precludes it form being one word.  :palm:
but what would I know  :doh:  I'm just an old bugga educated prior to computers  :lol:

Yep, I agree the top two look the best, and the one with the red Mad   Modder looks good.  (That is the top two of the group of four in post #41)

Just my 2c  :med:

Ok... I like the 1st one on post 41 and 44... The black letters. Either of those 2 are really good.

They just hit the spot on what I think works for us. Now I just gotta figure out how to change it  :smart:

Thank you Dennis!

BTW, SWMBO really likes the very 1st one!
