          Impact marking on the supplied parts showed less than desirable results. The force required for (6) characters into mild steel caused the part to

indent under the impact force, this caused some deformation in the part as well as washout of the center characters. Mark placement was

tested in (3) areas to determine if a side wall or end area might provide better results, this was not the case. CMT did provide a sample dot-peen

mark for reference on the part.
