Graversmith vs powergraver
2012-11-03 08:37:04 UTC
hey everybody ive been working on hand engraving and i am getting to the point that i am trying to buy a engraving machine. i am currently wondering whether it would be worth it to invest in a graversmith or a powergraver. the power graver seems the cheeper option but if im going to be making a investment that large in the first place i would like it to get something that would limit me in future. how does the power graver deal with steel. are both systems equally rugged or accurate. just looking for some before
i make my dicision.

Dave check out the engravers cafe web site and also firearms engravers guild. Both have forums where professional and amateur engravers can answer your questions. Personally I have always found that if you buy the very best tool you will not regret it in the future. I use an old gravermeister and wish I could afford to upgrade to the newer more advanced systems of palm control units. Go with GRS or Lindsay, would be my choice.

Awesome, but I'll have to keep using my hand gravers until I can afford one ;-) CIA
