Wow, Joseph, excellent work! You can tell who the professional and who the novice is That is really good work!

Just on average how long does it take you to do a pistol? rifle? It looks very time consuming. How long have you been engraving?

Wright, maybe practice some more in some coloring books

I have recently purchased a Lindsay graver and love it. I am a 19 year old machinist and love working with my hands. I purchased it because I don't have anything better to do when I am not at work and I don't have enough money to buy a milling machine and a lathe, and I want to be a gunsmith in the near future. It is a relatively cheap investment compared to buying a mill and lathe to work on.

Thank youCre10,I worked as a pro engraver for 27 yrs.Was once the Chief engraver of Winchesters Custom shop.I am retired from engraving now and live in Mexico.I never counted hours in my work.I counted days,some pieces took 40 others 100 or so.
Dros,you have great equipment,I recommend you forget about being a gunsmith and concentrate on engraving,Better work, money, and less hassels,I have been both.
Have a great day
