Default Re: Looking for some help/suggestions

I'm a newbie myself but I'll share what I've found so far. To begin cutting metal you need some practice plates (copper to start because it's softer), a couple of graver blanks and a handle. You can get the gravers and handle from Steve. I use speedymetals.com for my practice plates. The biggest investment is sharpening because without a sharp graver you can't do anything. Steve's template system is magic. Read the forums and learn how to transfer images to metal and hand push for a while. If you get the bug then start investing in all of the other stuff. There is a good thread on here for beginners that is helpful.
