I think the videos of them engraving must be sped up, they're going way to fast to never make mistakes!

I don't think so - engraving really is done this fast which makes it even more impressive. I get the impression that it doesn't really work if you try to do it slowly. Check out this video of Sherry Huntley in action (who is a very widely respected saxophone engraver):

I dont think its sped up either.

Now...most of what they are doing is the fill work..inside already established outlines.

Those may well take longer as they are likely individually cut.

Still...these guys were probably pretty quick and so well practiced that there was little need for hesitation.

Also, hesitation (I imagine) would lead to unclean cuts. I think they are just good!

They must've had a lot of scrap metal to practice on then, but like anything, practice is what it takes.

Sweat and finger dirt is being introduced into the engraving from the start.
Impossible to engrave with gloves.
