Default Wire Marking

The easy, dependable and inexpensive way.

This machine works - from john aka Waiter
O, The way we do this in the military is to engrave a unique wire identification number on each wire. This takes a special machine, one of which myself and Dust (Cozy IV builder) just acquired.

1) Basically, the machine "burns" inked text very lightly into the wire insulation to form a permanent, non alterable ID. The machine is a& mechanical beast. It has a built in heater to heat up the text wheels, it has ten wheels with the full alphanumeric and some punctuation. An adjustable timer pneumatically lowers the hot wheels for a preset time interval (1/2 second typical)

2) The Machine accommodates wires down to about 18 gauge, anything smaller than that, and a shrinkable sleeve is placed over the wire, and the sleeve is embossed. The photo shows a 22 gauge wire with a white shrink tube and the word WAITER 21 embossed.
i bought john out - he was done with it - for 150 bucks - machine costs him and anyone who wishes to use it $50.00 bucks

good stuff
