Haha I love machining as well. What do you use to remove background and inlay work? I have heard of some people using dentist drills or something like that. I have to experiment with some of my different graver geometrys but I would like to know what the good guys use. Thanks

Steve Lindsay has the answer to all your tool questions.
I was a stand-up engraver and worked with hammer,small chisels and push gravers. Here is what my work bench looked like.
I have written a book titled "A Gifted Man,memoir of an artist".It is available on line.You might find it helpful,wish you the best.
