    Building an Electro-Chemical Etching Machine for Metal Etching

    This is a step by step build of an electro chemical etching machine. I use it to etch my logos into my custom knives.

    Time stamps are in the first comment.

    Wiring diagram and component links are in the video description.



    Cheers,
    JK

    I made one of these several years ago to do etching on AR lower receivers. It works great still. I have been considering using a microwave oven transformer for even faster metal damage. Thanks for posting.
