MARKING STEEL TRAPS—How can I put my name and a number on my traps so it is not easily removed?
You can pet steel letters and stamp them in different places, or you can etch your name on with acids. Warm the trap and rub a wax candle over the part you wish to mark. When it cools a thin film of wax will adhere to the iron. With some pointed instrument write your name or whatever marks you want to use, in the wax, cutting through to the metal. Mix four parts muriatic acid and one part of nitric acid and pour a few drops into the marks in the wax, using care that it does not get on your hands or clothing or on other parts of the trap. In a short time it will eat the name into the iron, then the acid should be washed off.
