Default Newbie from nc

Hey guys and girls I'm just getting into graving and any advice would be appreciated. I currently don't own a machine which is something I am seeking advice on.
All I will be working on is cold rolled flat sheet and copper at the moment to practice on but would love to do motorcycle parts like rocker boxes and derby covers and other things in the future.
I don't mind paying for good machinery as long as it will do what I need it to do and last
Thanks in advance
Tyler

You cant go wrong with any of the Lindsay tools, I've tried them all and now only use the Lindsay setup. If your going to be doing motorcycle parts the Nitro hand piece will remove a lot of metal quickly but for fine work its a little aggressive.

Ok thanks.. I saw some of the Lindsey pieces briefly. Are most setups air driven does that give u better control. how many ppl use a image transfer compared to free hand for outlines and such.

Yes most setups are air driven, the Lindsay system uses the least amount of air with great control. For more info. on his tools click on the red lettering, engraving tools at the top of the page.

Don't know if you received my PM, but just in case, I'm in Eden and will be more than happy to meet with you and answer any questions you may have. I will open my studio for you to try a few tools if you want.
