I'm practicing a bit different engraving style this time (it's the main plate of watch mechanism), and I'm a bit stuck... can't figure out what kind of graver geometry I should use to engrave the part which is below main level (marked with a pensil on the photo).
I have couple of idea, would like to know if anybody has already tried them?
All my gravers are carbide, so I'm pretty sure I can't bend them.
First option I see is to grind off all the belly behind the heels and from the sides of my regular graver leaving just a tiny v-shape face on a thin "neck".
Another idea is to make mega steep heels, like 45-50 degrees and face of 60-65 degrees.
Or I should not bother and just get an hss graver, heat it and bend a bit right behind the heels to get more clearance?
Would appreciate any suggestions!
(Deepest part is 1,65 mm below the surface)
