    What jbkuma stated. More time but with less salt and/or less voltage/current. The faster it etches, the easier it is for it the bubbles and water turbulence to separate the resist from the part.

    That's a good question. I did find one article on the net that stated that increasing the amps will make it etch faster. It also states that increasing the voltage is what increases the amperage.

    That's a very deep etch. With that deep of an etch, you risk etching occurring underneath the resist or having the resist itself (or the resist's adhesive), degrading/not holding up. This can be...
