Hello, I'm a watchmaker with some basic experiance with hand engravers. Engraving was given at my school of watchmaking in Schoonhoven, Holland. That is more than 20 jears ago and now I wat to take up engraving for watches I fabricate. So I'm mostly intrested in engraving in mostly brass and steel. The air graver looks perfect for the job, With a normal hand graver it's a hard job what takes a lot of mussle power. I'm looking and reading to decide what graver system is good for me.

Welcome Hans,
Airgraver is perfect for fine detail on watch parts.Just need a big scope for the really small parts.
See my pictures below for a few jobs over the last few weeks.
Regards
Rod
