Hi Btatu,

My name is Doug Hall and I live in the northern part of San Diego. I'm not really offering instruction, per se, but a chance to try out the equipment. If you're already successfully tattooing, it's a much flatter learning curve to add engraving to your repertoire. I can give you some basic introductory pointers, and you should be able to take it from there, especially with all of the videos and tips that are available on this site, and a few others. I've got a Palm Control engraver, a number of sharpening templates, a scope, and a whole lot of other metal-working toys. You can contact me and we can set up some time for you to come over and try out the engraver. I usually get home from work around 5pm, and weekends are a mixed bag. I live right by the intersection of I-15 and the 56 (Ted Williams Pkwy) in Rancho Penasquitos.

Hm: (858) 484-9023
Cell: (858) 335-6002

Best regards,
Doug

Doug,
I'm new to engraving and have an interest in starting. I currently reside in Oceanside. If you're still open to have someone stop by and look at your setup and pick your brain on tools etc, I'd love to stop by.
Regards,
Marcos

Hi Marcos,

When you first sent me this message I was out of state for several months. I'm back in town and you're welcome to come by and try out my setup. My phone # is listed in the above reply to Btatu.

Take care,
Doug

Hi Doug, Not sure if you are still checking these threads since your post I am replying about was over 3 years ago but I am interested into diving into the world of gun and metal engraving but am having trouble finding resources here in San Diego. I live in PQ as well right off the 56 and if the offer still stands I would love to be able to come watch an engraver in action and see what tools I should be starting out with and how the process works. I appreciate your time and hope to hear from you.

Cheers
-Sean Wilson

Hi Sean,

You guessed correctly, I haven't peeked at this for quite a while! Anyway, yes, the offer still stands if you want to check out some gear. Just let me know.

Best regards,
Doug
