Now we're talking Mothers - mine used to use a little wheel with pins sticking out to prick through paper dress patterns, then dusted french chalk on to mark through to the material. Can you make a miniature version of that pin wheel?

Nothing new under the sun here.  The link to craft etching is one I shall follow up.  I do remember seeing etched plates as a child.  Its been a good distraction, but I better get some work done and revisit this later.   Cheers guys, I hope my ramblings and play encourages someone else to have a go.
Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:

Well you could make something fashioned like the tattoo guns using a solenoid.

Naw no tat's here I've never seen anything that I'd like to display for life! Mind you I do have about 4 feet of scars I could turn into a zipper!  :D (compliment's of the bas*ard that turns left)
