    Default gravers for engraving

    I would like to try some metal engraving. Could anyone suggest a budget graver or two to start with, plus any must haves. I don't want to buy a whole set only to find out I have no skill. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Check your local library in gunshithing section or crafts section too. I carry my library card every where I go. It's my 2nd form of ID.

    Thanks for the help everyone. Tried our library the other day and didn't come up with much except the old speedball books which would be great for patern ideas, but I am sure I have a long way to go before I get to that level. I agree about the library though, grew up with a mother who was a professor of english, so I still spend at least an hour or two a week there.
