Is it acid and eletric, or like engraving? I use a Tig brush to clean welds I'm imagining something similar....

Griff, I like your logo very much!!! 

I etch with two 9v batteries, beforebI used vinegar with some salt as electrolyte, now I got some (don't know what's in there) from a friend and I think it works faster. But I never tried to etch images that big!!!  You could etch a false san mai :)

Regards
