Default New here, saying hello.

New to the forum and love looking at the incredible work on here. I am a bit and spur maker and trying to get better at the engraving end of things. Took a class last year with Eddy Mardis, Shawn Didyoung and Russel Yates. Just bought a classic and really like it. Looking forward to learning and absorbing all I can on here. This is the 1st time using the classic, I hope the picture shows up.

Hi Gannon, Glad you got on the forum. Thanks for posting the pic. Looking good! Did it take some getting used to the Classic for the first cuts?

Thank you Steve, actually it really didn't take much to get used to this classic. I have been using a 901 handpiece and the classic fits my hand better and is more comfortable. Also, I have been using a 120 graver and after using the 116 that came with it I will be ordering your sharpening templates too. I really like that 116. Seems like cleaner and easier cuts.
