Anyone use electro-etch
Nope - Hermes Panagraph
Local laser shop, 12 bucks
Needs to be deep enough for ceracoat or duracoat
Laser it after coating?
I just did one with a home-made electro-etch for an F-Class barrel. I used a laser attached to my 3D printer to make a vinyl stencil.
I've used an electro-chemical etcher for about 20 years. It does a professional job of marking barrels with cartridge designation. Other uses include marking barrel with my name and the manufacturer's name and twist rate. With custom stencils factory markings can be very accurately reproduced. Would not think about using anything else now. No mis-strikes or crooked characters as with hand stamps.
Never done it, What would you recommend for an etcher and place for stencils
