    I've always been interested in engraving but I've always had too much on the table.

    What are the tools of the trade and what is a good resource for learning techniques?

    Check out GRS Glendo Tools. They make the tools, and teach. I've been using theirtools since 1978. Good luck--the secret to success is Get Started, and Keep At It! BR

    I think GRS is in Emporia, Kansas. Bill Janney, who does all the gunstock carving and engraving gives week long classes there. It's about $800 for the class tuition and about that much more for the unit.

    Here's the website for the GRS tools. They have a ton of examples of what their tool can do.
