    I'm wondering if sanding the bottom off would have been a little faster and easier. A couple seconds on a disc or belt sander and the piece is free, a little longer hand sanding on a sheet of 120 grit on a flat surface.

    Get yourself a jeweler's saw or a coping saw with a metal cutting blade; you'll be able to saw out bits like this and avoid all that filing. Having said that, well done and thanks for the upload!

    Thanks! Yeah the bottle is really the only reason I buy those. Lots of neat stuff you can make out of them.

    Very impressive! I would have never guessed that badge was made from the bottom of an aluminum beer bottle. Those looks extremely useful, now that I see what you can do with them. Nice!
