"My Grandson Eli (12) made these with his 3D printer They are made of PETG Filament, a strong flexible polymer, which makes them are sun and water resistant so they should last a good long time. They are fairly beefy also (1/4 to 3/8 thick including the mounting ear. The material duplicates a polished aluminum finish. However you can paint them any color you wish. I recommend finishing with a good acrylic Clear Coat after painting.

Toppers are $25 each. Toolbox Emblems are $20 each. The emblems can be attached with either double face tape or flat rubber coated magnetic strips. You can purchase the strips at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. $2 from the sale of each piece will be donated to the Southern Bolters to help with our social gathering expenses. Shipping is free. We accept PayPal and personal checks.

If we get enough interest from other than Southern Bolters, we may be able to offer (with approval) other choices in labels. i.e. instead of Southern Stovebolters.

This is not a profit making venture. Eli gets the profits, minus the shipping and donations, which will cover his cost for the material and new parts needed to be able to print with the PETG. Please PM me to order.

Update: For those requesting monikers other than “Southern Stovebolters”… it will take awhile before we can ship them.
My Grandson has to create a new template then print them out. Printing takes 10 hours for each piece.
He presently has 3 sets of “Southern” already printed, of which 2 are sold.
So he has one set printed and can easily print more, or do you want to wait for the other moniker toppers/emblems?

I am in Michigan. How about producing a generic "Stovebolter" topper?

I cannot use without permission of the Admins.
For now, I have permission to use the Regional monikers.

If/when you get permission for a generic "Stovebolter" topper, I would like one. Thanks!
