Hi Mark,

Welcome to the Forum.

You can visit ;
http://www.airgraver.com/Hand_Engrav...s_Overview.htm

And choose and make your own kit.Steve's tools are not available in the uk but you have to purchase them from Steve L direct.
Other brands are available.But tells us more on the type of engraving you wish to do or are already doing then I could give you more appropriate advise ?

Hi Mark,

In that case my advise is first learn the basics of hand engraving by reading up from books till you are able to engrave a few simple eg.letters or designs,ie The Art of Hand Engraving .

You could see some videos here;
http://www.engravingschool.com/private/videos.htm

There is even more here :

http://www.engravingforum.com/showthread.php?t=419

Look it up time permitting and the different ways ;
http://www.engravingforum.com/showthread.php?t=419

Then move up to air assisted gravers ,

http://www.airgraver.com/Hand_Engrav...s_Overview.htm

The ideal airgraver for motor bikes would be the "Nitro G20.

All the Best
