Default Re: New to engraving. Coins and other metals

Nice layout, I think doing the work with a dremel is really holding you back.
With the right tools, you will rock it in no time.
I would get some blanks, Steve's universal fixture and a couple of different templates.
The universal template is a miracle at sharpening a nice tips consistently.
It will accelerate your skills in no time.

The online resources available today are incredible, make use of them to study everything you can.

One can do a lot of learning with a little investment, and some makeshift tools.
But good tools will pay for themselves in time. (get the template!)

I'm using a homemade tool right now myself, it's good and it does work well enough.
Not something that I would use forever, but it has already payed for itself and the things I've sold will help pay for better tools.
I've almost saved up enough funds for a Classic, can't wait.
