I have been doing quite a bit of etching on copper using Press n’
Peel, and Ferric Chloride. I have been suspending my copper in the
Ferric Chloride face down—.(the face that is to be etched is down).
I keep it suspended so that it does not rest on the bottom. Recently
a friend sai= d that I should immerse it face up, and that there was
no need to have to rig up a system to suspend it. My first question
is, should I continue to suspend it face down, or should I have it
My second question is in regard to using my older model Canon copier
(PC920) which uses toner. I have been worried about the Press n’ peel
jamming in the machine, so have been taking my work to Laser quick
printers. However, lately they have switched to the new high speed
printers and my PNP copies have been coming out covered with little
pin dots as not enough toner is being deposited on them. I asked if
they were still using the carbon based toner and they assured me that
they were. Now, to my question. Have any of you used a Canon Copier
with Press N’Peel?
I did call Canon, but never got a good answer from them. The people
I spoke to were totally unfamiliar with Press N Peel and could not
advise me. One person said he was not sure, but he thought it would
be o.k., provided I let the machine cool down after each copy.
Another said that I would be ruining my copier.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
