This project is just becoming popular. It allows you to etch very fine designs into any nonconductive surface. A piece of unfinished wood is a fine example where you can actually draw with great precision using the plasma flame in exquisite detail. The device is simple and safe to use and can do many things for those that want to try something new with natures 4th state of matter!
"Burns In" Using a Plasma Arc -- Provides Hours Of Creative and Profitable Entertainment!
This interesting project allows the user to burn precise and very fine lines into paper, cloth, wood, plastic or most other non-metallic materials. The burning mechanism utilizes an electrical plasma produced by a high frequency discharge that forms at the emitting pin of the pen. Power is by built in batteries or an external 12 vdc wall adapter transformer. Once the user becomes familiar with operation, many designs requiring precise engraving will be at his finger tips.
The device is shown built in a tubular enclosure of 6 x 1.5 inches OD. that encloses the batteries and all electronics. The etching section is a pen-sized stylus connected by a length of flexible wire.
