Biography
I first started engraving some years ago when my mum gave me a starter engraving kit from Woolworths.
However, I didn't really start engraving until 2 years ago. I then upgraded to an engraver with speed control.
After this I upgraded to a dremel 4000 with a flexi shaft.
This had to much vibration, after talking to Leslie Pike she recommended a Micromotor.
I then bought a marathon n8 Micromotor and a dremel micro for cordless work.
I have started using different tips for different shading effects and adding water for smoothing.
I have also recently bought a magnifying headset.
I am reading books on drawing and engraving techniques but have much to learn
