Default Looking for some help/suggestions

Hi, Im a new guy here and to engraving. I was trained as a machine tool rebuilder in the late 70's and have done a lot of hand scraping, filing shaping of metal. Worked as a Paramedic for a long time but now find myself disabled due to multiple back injuries.

Ive always had a small machine shop at home and done gun work and national level competition slot cars. Always been drawn to detailed precision work. I can spend hours at the bench hand fitting and finishing parts.

I want to try engraving and am looking for some help in getting started. How to start, what to buy, who to get it from. Im so glad to have found this forum where it seems members are helpful and friendly.

Im in SE Wisconsin, land of cold icy winters and short hot summers.
