Some words by Sam Alfano about his techniques and GRS:
Please remember that engraver's techniques are in a constant state of evolution. Keep your mind open to fresh ideas and new ways of doing things, and you will undoubtedly improve many of the techniques.. (seen on the DVD).....Equipment: I use GRS equipment for all of my engraving, and have done so since I purchased my first used Gravermax in 1989. I've also been teaching hand engraving classes for GRS since 1998, and know first-hand how fast my students learn using their products. In many of the Tips & Tricks I refer to GRS tools. I use them and believe in them. While I come from the ranks of "old school" hammer & chisel engravers, GRS tools have enabled me to work faster and produce better work than I ever dreamed possible. The important thing, however, is not whether you push a graver by hand, drive it with a hammer, or use a GraverMach. The end result is what counts, and not how the chips get on the floor.
