Default Learning in Kansas

Hello, I'm currently learning to engrave. So far I've made all of my own equipment but am about to purchase a hand engraving kit to up my game a little bit. Eventually I would like to get an air engraver of some kind but for now I'm just palm pushing.

I make guitar picks from quarters and engrave some as well. I make the signature pick for the delta blues artist Charley Hicks and have made picks for a variety of other artists as well. I began using a dremel but quickly decided to make my own gravers and start pushing metal instead.

I'm trying to learn as best I can but it's been a steep learning curve. I'm medically retired from the Army and have had the need for a small business like this for a while now. I've been at it for about three months total with about a month push engraving. I hope to learn a lot here.

Here is some of my work. Thank you.
