I have a project in mind once my (horribly ugly) briefcase computer is done with. I want to have holes in the sides that look like acid burned through them. I was thinking I could get the result by using an Oxyacetylene torch and not cleaning up the edges, but my old high-school has the last day of school tomorrow and my old welding teacher won't be able to let me in the shop for the rest of the summer. (on the bright side, this means I've officially been a graduate for a whole year!)
anyways, items I do have access to are tons of automotive, carpentry, and household tools, a fair selection of metal working tools, a MIG welder, a propane blow torch, and a fairly small budget for my local hardware stores if need be. Any ideas?
