    Battle Grade Stripping Binge

    I finally got around to stripping my Battle Grade users. When I was getting them out I saw the NMFSH and got it out too. I'd etched the logo like two years ago but never got around to stripping it.

    I cleaned them good with soap and water then started etching.







    Cleaned up with soap and water. The decarb wasn't too bad at all. The Boss Jack had a great finish. FSH SFNO and Boom Parang had tooling marks with the FSH being the worse.



    Cleaned them up with a Scotchbrite wheel.

    How long did you leave the enchant on there for? That didn't work for anything in my Battle Saw

    Nidd, while we wait for jd's answer...

    mine was over the course of a Friday nite , about 6 hrs, probably about 10 separate applications/renewing of PCB etchant...

    I cleaned the logo well with mineral spirits to begin with, scratched out the residue with an old dental pic between coats, then cleaned off the logo with a fresh qtip after scraping..

    pretty labor intensive for such a small logo, but I enjoyed it.

    Almost 40 minutes I believe. I wanted to go longer but three started leaking through the tape onto my countertop. I was afraid it would stain.

    The Boss Jack etched much better than the other three. I'm sure it's because there was little or no decarb underneath and it had an awesome finish. I scrubbed them all with soap and water but should've used something else like Petey mentioned.

    If you ever strip a blade again, I HIGHLY recommend electro etching. Couldn't be more simple, a 9 volt battery, some alligator clips, and some salt water soaked q-tips.

    After my failed attempt at acid etching, this has become my favored method.
