Welcome!! Always good to have another engraver on board. How do you like the N'graver? I tried one a few years back when I was doing a lot of muzzleloading work. It seems like a well-made unit. It would be very good for stippling or backgrounding as well as normal cuts.

The N'graver is barely adequat.It is heavy and akward but beats hand pushing.It does fine background removal and decent lines but is a challenge with fine lines.I would love to get my hands on a Lindsay.Perhaps someone who has upgraded to palm control or that has multipule Lindays would like to part with one at a reasonable price,but it seems people hold on to them like the gold buillon they are.
The N'graver works quite well for carving wood though.
