I just picked up a Taig mini-mill to do engraving on guns. I am an 07FFL/02SOT holder and manufacture AR15's, AK47's and other weapons but they need to be engraved. My partner had a New Hermes engraver but I wanted to do something better and purchased this Taig with Mach3 software.
I know there is a lot to using this system but this is where I am at so far. I installed the software, rebooted the system and hooked up the control box to the Taig. I opened the Write wizard, inputed the text. I try to input values (seperation, depth) but if I put a value (example: +0.200) in the seperation and go to the next box to insert depth, the previous value returns to zero.
Is there a video tutorial on how to use this machine to engrave? I hope this is the correct forum to post this and apologize in advance if it's not.
