<p>&quot;Led&quot; From a pencil? Did you mean &quot;Lead&quot;?</p><p>Pencils have graphite in them...</p>
That would be a good idea to use to etch metal if you turned the power down
<p>i would not recommend that, i tried it with a solid aluminium piece, and because none of the alum melted away, there was constant contact, the lead heated up so much it exploded, landing on my hand. not a fun experience</p>
Not going to try it
<p>or you could just use a scissors.</p>
<p>Take it from a welder of twenty seven years that is not a plasma cutter. That is a CARBON ARC. Plasma does not use carbon in any form, it uses gas electrified and turned into a Plasma then under pressure blows the metal away so fast that the surrounding metal hardly has time to get hot. If you put a piece of glass between two pieces of ferreous metal and start cutting before you get to the glass you can cut it.</p>
<p>Cool! I might need to try this with a heavy duty bench power supply.</p>
