Can the model 78 mark a 1/4″ tall character into mild steel?

Q- Can CMT’s model 78 mark a 1/4″ tall character into mild steel?

 

A- No the model 78 air impact marker with the 2″ stroke puts out 2,200 lbs. of force at 80 PSI.

(1) 1/4″ tall character going into mild steel will require an estimated¬†4,000 lbs. of force.

Options would be to: (A.) drop down to a 3/16″ tall character or (B.) use a more powerful impact marker such as the model 288.
