    GAV, your English is good.

    I am interested in chemical etching.

    my first try on steel:
    http://thearbalistguild.forumotion.com/t818-first-crossbow

    I used ferrous sulphate (FeSO4 ?)and 14v current...

    with a laser photocopy resist...

    Hotspur, good work ))

    I tried experiments:
    - acid H2SO4 (water solution)
    - acid HNO3 and HCOOH (mixeds in water)
    - sals NaCl and 15v current (1...5A)

    As result - I liked CuSO4 )

    laser photocopy - not good connection (steel-paint), in my work.

    Interesting to me photoresist, it is in future

    Great!! I especially like the way you incorporated an uncovered spoked wheel.
