    Post Brass nameplates

    I came across this article recently, it seems to a good way of making brass nameplates, shows the results which look pretty good.
    (Can't remember if this method was discussed in the other threads about etching, but it caught my attention as something actually tried and photographed).

    That could realy give a nice touch to the end of a project. Great info, thanks.

    Update - The original GEM web page has been pulled or it just does not work anymore. But, here is the google link to the google cashed page. No photos, but better than nothing.

    Wow, almost the identical process I use to etch printed circuit boards for my electronics classes. I'll have to try it for some name plates on my machines. Small world too. The guy that wrote the article lives about 15 miles from me.
    Thanks, Matt

    Matt: I've been using the blue stuff for a number of years for pc boards also. It looks pretty good when the blue is ironed onto the component side as a "silk screen" (after being laser printed with parts outlines and reference designators).

    Looks real good on white pine too but I don't know why I ironed onto it ... oh yeah, it must have been a logo I was toying with at the time.

    One of the whiz kids at work says you need just a real laser print out. Take your iron and transfer it to the copper clad board.

    It must be the dry toner type of print.
