    a little help would be appreciated...

    Watch Engraving

    I feel like the answer would be the same for gun engravers some prefer to have all quality controll aspects covered by themselves and not leave anything to chance by someone else and others would rather have someone more competent than themselves work on stuff that they are not too familiar...

    I'm about to finish up a piece that I am just refinishing and waiting on a leather guy to make a case for it but was wondering, how do y'all sell pieces that you decide to work on out of the blue from your personal collection?
