Default Another new guy.

Hello all.

I just happened upon your site last night. WHat interesting work I have found on here already.

I have been a metal fabricator for years, and have also do glass carvings.

one of the things I have been doing lately are making custom badges. I do not do engraving at the moment, but an very interested.

One thing I am interested in very much are the uses of pantograph machines for engraving my custom sculpture models. I build these models in copper, bronze, stainless and steel.

My work is not real common but not as involved as the engravings I have seen on here.

I watched about 10 of Steve Lindsay's videos last night and am very inspired. I thought if I where to learn, I might even be able to add that extra touch to some of my smaller works.

What might be some direction for a beginner? I am mostly into sheet metal shaping (use of power hammers, english wheel and lots of hammer work).

I would post pictures of some of my work, but don't want others to think I am bombarding your nice site here with off topic items.

Thank you for your time.
