    Engraving 925 silver and other metals

    I think you hit the nail on the head. I did notice ive hasten the turns which leads to the metal tearing and leaving heads. I’ll try the lower heel And see the difference. I’ve chsnged the face to a 55 degree and changer the graver max to 2500 rpm and is been cutting better.
