    Nice site, George!

    I like the fiberoptic front sight on your G34. I used to shoot 3-gun with a G35 and would've loved that sight. I had fiberoptic ghost ring sights on a Winchester SX2 Practical MK2 - the best tactical shotgun I've ever used - and loved them.

    Ken, I mainly use a G35 setup the same way. I got the 34 to teach one of my daughters to shoot tactically. My favorite shotgun is my Black Water 590A1.

    Glad you liked the site. As soon as I'm released by the Doc I will be adding to it. I have a couple of reviews and a WIP of a forge build to finish and add to it.

    Have a great day!

    I recall finding the site to build this etcher several years ago. I build rifles, and use one of these to do the etching of information on the receiver. There are a few different designs out there. I started with one similar to what George has linked to, and it works great. If you are interested in a more advanced design, check out either one of these sites:

    I hope to see more posts like this one. Thanks to the OP for posting.

    The first one I made has low and high power settings. I used it to engrave parts for R/C cars and trucks I designed, built, and sold in the 90s & early 2000s. If someone would like the plans to them, I would gladly email them the schematic. I have a bunch of stuff that I have built over the years. A lot of my tooling was built to meet a specific need. The listed etcher is mainly used by knifemakers starting out. Simple yet effective.

    Ron, Thank you for the kind words.

    Bookmarking this project. Thanks for sharing, George. Will definitely build this one when I have time and use it to etch my tools.

    Built this electro etcher which I use for marking my custom made knives and other projects. Plans are available for free on my website. The parts can be sourced from Radio Shack or the web.
    Great piece of work, would like to build one
