They look amazing! But is there any kind of rotational device used / needed for that?

I didn’t use the rotary for this since it was easily fitted on a 1/4" x 5" area. But yes, a rotary can etch all the way around designs.
I have a rolling pin just waiting to be etched with something all the way around… just haven’t decided on what…lol

I like the tarnish but didn’t know if it would impact the cermark marking down the road. I was thinking a clear coat might preserve the existing condition/character but prevent additional tarnishing. :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing!

Lol

An idea for etching the casings from a 21 gun salute…I would love to have had those in the case with the flag when my Dad passed.

I started to go there and then decided that might not be taken with the intended levity in this political and social climate.

Would have liked to have the ability to mark a casing with the young man’s name who was taking my daughter out.
Wouldn’t have to say a word, just show him the round with his name on it. :no_mouth:

:joy: If you’re sitting in the living room cleaning your gun when he comes over the first time you get to see what his mettle is if he comes over a second.

(DISCLAIMER: tongue in cheek - don’t try this at home…not politically correct…not encouraging irresponsible firearm handling…etc etc.)

My brother got me a blood red machete from the Dominican Republic. If I have a daughter, I’ll probably be sharpening that when she brings a boy home. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Um, probably shouldn’t laser a live round though? Would that be a way to put a pass through in a basic?:laughing:

Lol. Would probably void the warranty

My son on law makes his own bullets…I’m having him make some without the powder…so no blowing a hole in the laser casing :grin: no one will ever know they arent live ammo…:smiling_imp:

You could always laser mark the casing, then load it with powder, bullet etc.
