Hi all,
I've been a member for years reading off and on but haven't been on in years. I've followed because my grandpa Barry Trindle was a master knife maker and beautiful engraver. This past winter I was asked if I wanted what my grandpa had left of his engraving equipment. The poor farm house wasn't being friendly to the basement and grandpas work area. I gladly said yes and recently moved where I have room to clean and set it all up. Unfortunately my grandpa passed away this Easter. Ill be posting as I set everything up as Ill have lots of questions on what some things are. Ive got a 50b ball vice and bausch and lomb microscope. Im excited to get started but of course wish I would've years ago when I had a great teacher close to home. I love flipping through everyones albums on here and reading through your tutorials.

Daniel Trindle

Welcome Daniel, hope you enjoy your stay.

I also think that it is a shame that you won't have your grandfather giving you instruction but I am sure he will be looking over your shoulder to see what you are doing. I hope that you took the opportunity to ask him questions about engraving as they arose.

Take care,
Roger

Hi Daniel, Thank you for posting. Again it was sad news to hear about your grandfather, Barry. Prayers for Delpha and your family. He was an old dear friend. As I mentioned I tried to contact Barry about a month ago after being out of contact for years. I called the old home number I had and left a message. It was a Friday that I dialed and I said in the message I got to thinking about him since he liked to listen to the radio program Science Friday.

I did find some info after we messaged on fb the other day. Barry did have an AirGraver it was first prototype airgraver (it was called ACG Air Chasing Graver then). He wrote a nice feedback about the tool that I included when making the original website. Here is a link to that feedback page from the archive of the old site: Scroll clear to the bottom. Barry's comment was first on the site: http://www.lindsayengraving.com/engr.../feedback.html

I agree with Roger. Barry will be looking over your shoulder and watching you engrave! If you're ever driving through Nebraska please stop by. Bring some of what you've been engraving on and I'd be happy to check it out and help with where I can.
