Mr. Adams, your name was mentioned in a thread on this forum about engraving dies. Forgive me if I have contacted you in error. My interest is in how one goes about making deep straight sided, flat bottomed cells for inlay, champlevé enameling and niello work. It would appear that engraving for dies has similar characteristics. If you are willing, I would be grateful for any advice.
Thank you,
Di Flair
Hey everyone! I'm an experienced letterer, just looking to get a lay of the land from this side of things. https://www.instagram.com/masgrimes/
I am looking for a used Lindsay airgraver. Thanks
I am just starting to hand push and am trying to get my graver sharpening skills right so the graver will cut not stop.I was wondering if all engravers including the knife graver, round graver, and flat graver should all have heels on the bottom of the graver. In watching Sam's sharpening videos I only see him putting 15 degrees on right and left side. I did this with my #4 flat and find a lot of resistance
