Default Hello From UK

Hi, my name is Richard. I am new to engraving and after a great deal of research I bought a rotary tool for engraving. I must admit I did not see this website before or I may have reconsidered. I am enjoying the experience so far and the work displayed on this site is amazing. I have started this as a means to earn extra cash and time away from my day job Cisco Network Engineer. I have a few images of my work that I will post and maybe you could give me some feedback and advice .

Hi,

Welcome to The Engraving Forum Richard.
My advise is forget the rotary tool, if you can,
its advisable to start hand engraving.
