The Etching Pencil is used with the butt welder to mark
tools, jigs, fixtures, templates, etc.
TO use the etching pencil:
Clamp cable end of etching pencil in welder stationary
jaw. Move weld lever up to anneal position.
Press the anneal and etching pushbutton and clamp the
button down with the etching pencil clamp. This closes
the circuit through the welder and also grounds the
etching current through the machine.
Place the work to be marked on the table of the machine.
Since the machine is grounded there is no second lead
required to the work.
Etch with sufficient pressure to prevent the point from
arcing, but not great enough to destroy the copper point.
The copper point should be kept sharp to secure best
