    I don't think that vise will be stable enough for hammer and chisel engraving, you will eed something beefier

    Engraving a chrome plated axe head

    I've been asked to engrave lettering on a chrome plated axe head that will be used for an award in the forestry service. I have not engraved on chrome plate, does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this or if I should pass on it? Thanks! Joe

    BM 9mm

    My sister was the firearms registrar when she worked for the Warren, Michigan PD. One guy came in to register a short barreled Uzi...he had to leave without it.

    I bought one of these last year as a fun shooter, am also thinking about engraving it. does yours have the dot punched import number on it as well? and the 3/8 inch ground out circle from the Spanish police markings? I need to figure out how o eliminate them.

    Computer layout

    I've used Corel since the '90s, originally for more artsy stuff, now mostly for engraving transfers and 2D designs for a small CNC mill. It is overkill, but who says you can't swat flys with a Buick?

    Grs handpiece compatible with other mfrs?

    A few years back I built my own air pulse machine (NOT one of the cannibalized air compressor machines you see on you tube) that used a digital timer and solenoid valve so that I could go from a single air pulse up to around 1,000 pulses per minute with my GRS handpiece. It worked fine. I'm...

    Grs handpiece compatible with other mfrs?

    1943 Copper penny...

    1943 Copper penny...

    It was the discovery piece for 1943 off metal strikes in copper, found and removed from circulation in 1947. The article makes it sound like it was recently found in some kid's lunch money, but that isn't the case.

    1943 Copper penny...

    The 1943 copper sold for $210,000. Being a long time coin collector and friends with some of the top people in the business, all I can say if you try to fool them is, good luck.

    1943 Copper penny...

    The Denver mint example sold for 1.7 million because it is the only one from that mint. This piece is the discovery coin but there are about a dozen from the Philadelphia mint and should sell for 1/10 of the Denver piece. so what are you thinking?
