We haven't heard from woodchuck in a long time. I will send him an email for you.
He's a fast little woodchuck.
"WoodChuck here. Yeah I have been doing A LOT of prop building and not much forum visiting. I do not build the DL-17. It is one of those items that became too labor intensive to do by hand, which raised the selling price out of sight. Now that 3D printers are getting cheaper and more reliable, I am sure there will be vendors offering them a lot cheaper then I could build one. Thanks for checking in with me. Chuck"
ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
