    Thanks for the good idea, Sam. I started another poll. I didn't ask about SS as we can probably figure that out based on age. Of course folks are welcome to mention that in replies if they like

    Hey Sam, Look to the back of the room and see they guy waving.....That's me! I am a first class bottom of the barrel just starting to learn New-bee! They don't come any newer then me. So I guess that puts me into amateur hobbyist category But I am learning fast!!!

    I have watched all your you tube videos and just received your graver sharpener DVD that my Fiancee Jane bought me for my birthday. I really learned a lot and enjoyed watching it.

    I have no idea where this will take me but one day I hope to earn the title of master engraver.

    Just so you know it was your work and the the work you have posted on the internet particularly the firearms engravings which have inspired me in wanting to learn this field of study. I look forward to meeting you one day.
