    Ron Smith in Monteagle May 2

    Ron is one of the nicest people I have ever met. It's hard to understand how some body can be that good and still be so humble.

    Practice plates

    I bought some plates from a sheet metal shop and some from GRS. Believe me, there is a difference. The GRS plates cut much smoother. Cheap stuff is never very good IMHO. I don't work for GRS either.

    Question: Graver heels

    Some of the best engravers in the world don't use any heal at all. But I know this for sure. You can't cut a small curve with a long heal but you can cut any line with a short one. Most of the heels on my gravers are neatly imperceptible. They are rarely longer than .015 and mostly shorter.

    Reciprocating air file

    I bought one for sanding around wood carvings. I never even liked it for that. I'll sell you one cheap.

    Question: Microscope Eye Shields

    In the last year I have lost 3 things in the shop. I have cleaned and sterilized the shop from top to bottom at least 4 times and they are nowhere to be found. One of them was pretty large and I don't even drink.

    Need help (inkjet)

    I have had 4 or 5 HP inkjet printers and all of them worked great if you use genuine HP ink. The cheap refills will not work well at all.

    Question: How far do you look ahead when cutting straight lines

    I do as Sam said, I cut to the line if I look ahead I'm not aware of it after all there's no traffic to watch for and nobody is following too close.

    Question for advanced members.

    In the photo below, How do you think the breach was formed? Was this a silver soldered on overlay and then sculped or was it sculpted down from the barrel forging without an overlay? I would like some feedback from Sam Alfano, Mike Dubber or Sam welch as well as others please.

    Transfer Design with Epson Printer

    Yes, the Epson inkjet printers work very well for transfers. Use Tom White's transfer fluid and his transfer transparencies also.
