Default a good way to mark WL's dragon cases

as many of us know, one of the few, good value, reliable and well built items Wicked Lasers sell is..... the dragon case. i love my dragon cases! there are 4 of them in my house, soon to be more, and it does help to mark them to tell what lasers are inside, whether it be a core or a nova lasers x series.

i thought i'd just share the way i personally do it, which i think looks pretty good - subtle and matching the case's overall metallic look - is with one of those silver ink marker thingys on the opposite end to the screw cap. nice shiny metallic looking writing so, do others mark their dragon cases, and how?

Good idea! I would try and mark mine but I only have one laser.....
Maybe use a dremel tool to make a mark into the cap?

I don't think 400mW is enough to mark steel O_o

Now that's impressive ! Still wondering if they could mark steel would definitely want to get one ;D and maybe make a diy engraving machine (coming to think about it, i could make a plastic engraving one) : But that'd be alot of work ;D

I thought about it and I have the whole thing in parts now that I decided not to go on with it any more... I realized that I would need a full metal casing and a CO2 laser with about 40-60 WATTS of power to get anything worth it. Yes, they're not that expensive, but the stability of the unit and the reliability tends to go down when you can buy a laser for about $500 or so, and a fully built unit for about $1500... just a thought. Also, hot filters (filters that block IR and pass visible light) are VERY hard to find in a large sheet so you can see inside. I contacted many companies and these things are very expensive and hard to come by. :-[

Good luck in your research for that hot filter, I wouldn't have the skills and tools to make and engraver anyway :P

nah, 400mW is far from enough to mark steel - steel wool is actually pretty dang flammable though. I once tried engraving on a CNI black/gold case with my 400mW IR and it worked because it was messing up the black paint/finish/whatever the heck it is. The lasers used to actually cut steel are hundreds of Watts, and to mark steel I'd imagine you still need a few tens of watts

Daedal - for a window into a CO2 engraving type system, plexiglass should suffice, unless I missed something.....I was under the impression that the 10600nm (I forget exactly, LOL) that the CO2 puts out can be blocked by normal plastic sheeting....so a regular plexiglass window would work in place of your hot window....

Yep. Good thing about CO2 lasers - goggles are cheap!
