Who Knew???

After spending big bucks on engraving tools and a press, one that hurts to move even short distances, I read in the November 1946 issue of Popular Mechanics that I’d wasted my money.
It explains how to sharpen the nibs of straight pens into engraving tools and how to print using just my shoe. Not sure if I need a shoe like the one pictured but, if so, I might find it near the loud plaid jackets at the Extreme Vintage store.
Here’s hoping.
