Hi, thought I should introduce myself - I work in a hardware store with key-cutting/engraving services
My surname is Glen, as the username implies, and engraving is an area of the business I intend to expand, as the username sort of also implies. 

Within the year my plan is for me to take over ownership of the shop as my boss (semi-)retires - an exciting prospect as I get to go from someone working 7 hours per day with reliable pay to someone working every hour per week and likely not seeing any profit for a good while due to investment in shop renovation and machines. Huzzah. 

Hoping to scour this forum for every nugget of wisdom I can O:)

welcome , whereabouts in scotland, i am in glasgow if you need any help regarding engraving (depending on my limits) or you can help me lol

 East End. The area isn't the nicest, but it'd be worse if this long-established business was to close. I talked the gaffer out of selling it outright as I step up to take over. 

 

Our engraver is a janky prehistoric gravograph unica - which just about gets the job done. My mid/long-term plan is to get a larger CNC machine and CO2 laser cutter in due course, as we have the luxury of a decent sized store-room which will be converted into a workshop for those big new toys.
