    What a wonderful series! Thanks for the tips and “tricks of the trade” you have shared! I am really impressed with the process and the tools. I have been carving my commemorative plates by hand with knives, chisels and gouges and it takes forever. The high speed power engravers look like it would cut my production time and increase my profit margine tremendously. Again . . .Thanks!
