Default Italian newbie

Hi!
I'm Stefano, from Italy
I found this place browsing through tool construction forum and I found it very interesting!
Currently I got no skill at all in engraving, nor I got specific tools, I just desire to learn something more about this art.
One of my hobbies is Diy, especially working with metals. It's few years since I collect old tools and machines in my small box.
Currently I got an old lathe, milling machine, table drill, some grinders ( I'm building a belt sander), benders and welders. One of my weaknesses is not knowing how to sharpen tools properly.
Got other passions, like guns (above all Big calibers), motorbikes and audio extreme equipment.

I post a couple of pictures of Others passion, just to let you know what I like

Here a short video of my last electronic attempt, a plasma tweeter

Saluti
Stefano

Rendoman,

Are you aware of the Bottega Cesare Giovanelli engraving school in Gardone, V.T. Brescia? If you want top quality instruction in engraving that is the place to get it.
