Default Where can I get my name engraved on my New Hudy tool set

I just purchased a 25th anniversary tool set and want to get my name engraved on them. Where would be the best place to get this done. I dont want a scratch on my tools. I need someone that is very meticulous and careful not a machine shop.

You could try to find a local engraver where you are located. One that does nice work on fire arms should be able to do what you want. Cost might not be cheap though

I'm in Charlotte, NC. I saw that eds engraves their tools I emailed them about maybe doing mine even though that's hypocrisy.

I am a CNC machinist that is careful and meticulous. As a matter of fact, careful and meticulous IS my job.

I dont know what hack shops you have been to, to make a statement like that, but I dont fall into that generalization.

I would look for Laser Marking or Laser Engraving, it wont let the aluminum corrode over time since you are taking the anodizing off
