Lightbulb How do they do it?

Hey guys. Was just thinking about this today. What do companies use to do the printing on the top of engine heads? Was mainly just curious on how it was done.

possible but they are pretty touchy man , the scale bar and a few other delicate parts like the belt on the belt drive seem to have a mind of their own when the machine is thrown to the outer limits of its travel

I believe you can get machine which can weld and engrave, that is a neat machine to have but still very expensive although I know people who have spended many thousends of Euro's for a lathe and milling machine to do some hobby at home.
