Engraving Lighters (eg Zippo)

Thermark is what I use on metals and leaves a definite permanent mark…


(I should clarify - that means I did not use Cermark on any metal, just glass. I marked the steel as it got to me.)

That’s one of the things I’d love to do with GF when it arrives. Today I engrave my zippos with a jig for my CNC.

Then touch off the jig for repeatability.


Do you mind sharing your setting for the zippo engraving?

I engraved on the Zippo using a 60w Universal Laser System, max power, and essentially 10% speed. ULS has a database program for their layout, and it was the standard default settings for marking on steel.
