    Default New Hermes Engravograph

    I got a New Hermes Engravograph panagraph at a garage sale for $20. has a handful of letters in the font tray-not a complete alphabet but I have seen plenty of fonts on ebay over the years-this is not the motorized machine just simple scribe-my question is does anyone have directions on setting the darn thing up-It has several scales with clamps and can be set to things like 6 or 2 but I have no idea how to set things up-any info would be appreciated, Thanks Fred

    Fred, How are things in Albany?

    The three points of the scales Mr. Sackett marked all need set to the same number or fraction thereof, and you will be fine.

    Give me call if you need some more help.

    A gun and a parachute have a common dynamic. When you need one nothing else will really suffice.

    If you go to this page and scroll down toward the bottom you'll find the instruction sheet for the Pepe Tools flat engraving machine. It should be similar enough for the explanations to do you good.
    Enjoy!
