engraved labels for electrical panels: 10 Things I Wish I’d Known Earlier

The fact is that most electrical components have some sort of label on something. As a contractor, I use these labels to make sure that I know where each component is located, and the labels on the panel help me remember where I might need to use a screwdriver. These labels can also help me make sure that the panel I’m working with is properly installed.

Label engraving is a technique where small diamonds cut from some metal are engraved with letters or numbers and then placed on the surface of the component. Label engraving is a process that is relatively easy to do but also pretty tricky if you don’t have a master engraver. The process is explained more in a video tutorial on the website below.

Im not a big fan of labels, but I feel it is essential to get the right screwdriver for the job. As a general rule, engraving screws should be turned with a Phillips-head screwdriver as opposed to a flat head screwdriver. A flat head screwdriver will not only hurt your hands, but it will also damage the screw. In the same vein, it’s a good idea to use a small flat head drill bit for drilling.

The screws should be drilled into the panel and not the panel. Why? Because the first time you drill into a panel, the drill bit will either bounce off or hit a small screw.

Another reason is that you’ll want to use a drill bit that’s just slightly smaller than the panel, unless you’re really very precise. The purpose of this is so that you can turn the drill bit while still drilling the screw. It’s a little trick you can use to reduce the risk of hitting a screw and damaging the panel itself.

Screws are a really good idea, but not for every panel. Some panels are so small that you might wind up drilling the screw into them. That will cause the screw to push into the panel, making it impossible to drill the screw out. While this isn’t really a problem, it is still a good idea to drill into the panel.

Screws are a good idea, but you might want to avoid drilling them into small panels because you could wind up damaging the panel itself.

Drill the screw first. Drill it into the panel, then you can either make a hole in the panel, or drill the screw into the screw.

For the drill, we’re using a regular drill bit on a drill press. This makes it impossible to drill the screw out because it would either take too long to get the screw out, or the screw itself would press into the panel. The screw is pretty standard and is 1/16″ in size.

The drill bit doesn’t need to be long for a screw. The screw is small enough that it wouldn’t interfere with the screw. The screw is also standard, it’s the standard for a screw in most electrical panels. If you want to be fancy and drill the screw in half, you’ll probably want to make the screw a little bigger than it is in the picture.
