item to hold tags when engraving

Post by jopatengraving » Tue Apr 25, 2017 4:04 am

Need some advice.

I engrave pet tags as a home business but it is doing my head in at the moment as the tags can varying by up to .5mm in size and it means the jig I have wont hold the item unless I pack it. Does anyone else engrave such items and has a good setup? I'm using an egx 300. I was thinking of a vice setup but the tags are round edged so just after best way to hold that and is quick to put them in and the tag wont move as any movement wrecks the engraving. Any thoughts?

Thanks
Mal
