I want to engrave roughly 1in round tubing Stainless and aluminum.
What is the best method air assisted, or by hand tools?

Welcome to the forum. I am in Philadelphia.

1'' round would be hard to cut with any system, but easier with air power. Better to practice on flat work first.

Hi Keegan,

Are you conversant with hand engraving and what methods of engraving do you know ?
The reason I ask then it is then easier to give appropriate advice .
Kevin is right though.

What type of compressor will I need?
I already have a decent one for my other engraver, will that work?
