    SAA Work Holding Question

    Like most I have just been dubbing the tips of my gravers with varied results. but going up the sides sounds intriguing and worth the try I've been trying a 115 graver on my last job just to see why many people seem to like it and it wasn't bad. Had a lot more control than a 120 and a little...

    SAA Work Holding Question

    OK so let me get this straight now..... DUBBER is DUBBING if I read this correctly Mike Ever get the feeling we are the only two remembering all the talks we had with Frank? I do find the bulldozer technique interesting and will have to try that on a few of my 105's just need to calculate...

    working while staying at home

    Well still maintaining social distance as much as possible here. Still engraving the Winchester but a bit burnt out on it and need to change things up so I can look at what I am engraving with a fresh perspective. So as a change-up I am getting set to engrave a custom stainless steel golf...

    another way to look at this is with this question. Is grey a light or dark color? depends on what it is next to. If against black it seems light. Against White it seems dark It's all an illusion

    Leland we are talking values here and contrast. To make something dark you use a combination of number of lines/dots and depth of said lines. In contrast if you want something to look lighter or whiter you would use less. Also visually it also depends on what it is next to in order to make it...
