Hi to all dear members,
I'm new to engraving and stone setting! Have ordered Olympus SZX7 microscope for stone setting (working distance 113 mm)
Does anyone use this microscope for engraving or stone setting or is it suitable at all for those purposes?
Your advice is highly appreciated...
Anyone have any tips for setting stone this way.
I have made 4 attempts to bead set. One in steel it wasn't easy but it stayed. However the brightcut around stone was a hack job at best.
I then tried in copper and the beads didn't hold and the brightcut was even worse.
I understand how to...
