    Sam and John, Being able to plan/think ahead for eliminating possible problems is the reason for work flow sequences. Thanks for your experiences so that I may learn without having to experience the "hard knocks" learning curve.

    What is the work sequence from beginning to finished project? Assuming that the project is properly polished and the design phase has been completed. The design transferred to the work piece. The project contains various operations: metal inlay, scroll, relief, shading/detailing, bulino...

    Cleaning old Engraving

    I agree with you about the electric tooth brush. Chujy's idea is a winner. My mind went crazy dreaming up attachements I could make for various operations in my gunwork.

    Cleaning old Engraving

    I have on the bench a Browning Superposed Diana grade (French Greyed Receiver, forend iron) 1974 vintage. The engraving is sharp but the background is dark with crud and has some light air rust discoloration. No noticeable pitting. I would like to clean and restore the original engraving and...

    Question: Sandblasting or beadblasting

    My 2 cents - All of the above is right on and should be taken to heart! If by "cold" blue you mean the traditional rust bluing. SS will not rust! Therefore it can not be blued by this mean and/or this mean can not be used for the "French Greying" process. If cold blue means the coloring of...

    Stipple Point

    Yes, you must in some manner off-set the rods. I fined that by chucking it in a QC holder of the size of rod and tightening the screw off-set it a little and in some cases enough but using a holder of the next size(1/16 rod in a 3/32 qc) also works. I have also used a very thin shim on one jaw...

    Stipple Point

    The 45-60deg point is eccentric, putting the point on one side of the rod. Sorry for the fog!

    Stipple Point

    I am sure many have thought and do this but have not seen it posted. I use either HSS(cobalt) or Carbide rounds of 1/16, 3/32 and 1/8 " for stipple points. I chuck them in a battery run drill grind a relief angle of "approx"(eyeball!) 5-10 degrees then a point of "approx" 45-60 degrees. I set...
