Default Hello from new guy

Hello all, just found this forum and I am a wannabe engraver
Made my own chisels and hammers and am carving hobo nickels.
I will practice through the winter and hope for a few keepers.
I was the top model maker at the Smithsonian when I retired so I know tools. I would love to trust myself to engrave some knives and guns, prehaps someday. Meanwhile I will soak up all the knowledge I can.

Hi Runes,
As a top model maker at the Smithsonian you must have some work to show
As for hobo nickles, if you make them, show them too!
We like to see others stuff
As a retired person, I would treat myself to a hammer and chisle combined into one. Like the Classic or Palm Control airgraver. You would revive the need to make grand new stuff.

Hope to see your work,

Daniel
