    R.I.P. Ray Philips

    That is truly very sad news. I met Ray at the Hartford Gun show when he first started to market his Ngraver tool. We both had hair then. I was a beginning engraver and to find somebody who actually sold "real" engraving tools was like Christmas in July. Naturally I bought one of the Ngraver...

    Lettering Sample Plate

    A good option for these plates would be to make castings of them and sell or give them out to people. Even let FEGA sell them along with all the other castings on the web page

    Help, please: Grs engraving vice

    I hsve also had my vice get tight after cleaning. Make certain the brass pin is not rotated. It sort of wears in after use and if it does not line up again with its wear position it will not rotate freely I have found. Aldo don’t put it back in upside down.

    Critique Request Some doodles to show

    Here's another thought... try turning you oval upside down so the heaver elements ar on the bottom and not visually squishing the scene. Heavier is always most of the time with some exceptions that cannot be determined by mere mortals usually towards the bottom
