John, I must agree with you, I run a bussiness in Bendigo Australia, & have found its gives me a better result spinning a blunt diamond cutter at about half the normal speed gives you a great result on, anadised aluminium, stainless steel, s/s mugs & drinking flasks, even sterling silver bracelets the engraving dosn't wear off & the engraving stands out, just dont make a mistake its harder to buff off! I've just registered on this sight, a mate of mine Baz told me about it! I'm heading off next week to the States & I'll be at the ARA from the 20th Feb.

I've recently become a proponent of spinning the diamond gravers.

Haven't tried it on everything, but find it works wonders on coated items, like some coated writing pens. It also makes a better cut for oxidizing trophy brass.

I'm happy Baz told you about our forum. We're getting quite a few Aussies on board. Some are threatening to band together and come to next year's ARA Las Vegas show. :-)

If you're in the mood to meet and party with some of the people of this forum, while in Vegas, take a moment to check out this thread:


A lot of posts there. After reading the first post, you may want to fast forward to the 200+ post, to see where we stand.

Almost forgot - Welcome to Engraving Etc!
