    Turntable use ... i dont get it :(

    Make sure your vise is straight, not tilted. I put a rubber ring under the vise to keep it from tilting for example. Move your turntable with the vise on it to center it, and check if the position continues to be good just leave it like that))

It was a big thing for me to make the shading... I didn't made black paint on purpose, to show the light...

    Help, please: Graver geometry to cut in depth

    It's enough to avoid hurting the borders in tight scrolls, and not much loss at re-shaping if required)

    Help, please: Graver geometry to cut in depth

    Stephen I also use those wheels to sharpen a small belly on my regular graver, but I never made a huge belly like that yet. This is my graver I'm working with, 80 degree with mirror polished heels.

    Help, please: Graver geometry to cut in depth

    I will do something like you shared, will have to make couple of test-drives)) I don't have a power hone at home, have to visit a jeweller friend and sharpen my gravers at his workshop, so it's taking time. I will for sure share results!

    Help, please: Graver geometry to cut in depth

    Jerry, I will try a 30 degree heel + belly removed till half of the graver, it should be enough for 1,6 mm depth. Most probably I will not be able to make my tiny swirls close to the walls though.

    Help, please: Graver geometry to cut in depth

    Thanks for advise! I will try on the area which is blank, it should not be visible under another part on top of it. In fact this main plate will be mostly covered by other wheels and smaller plates, I engraved it more for training than from practical point of view)
