Hello everyone.
I’d like to show you my reshaped onglette gravers. I used a side of an onglette for a deep beveling of scrolls. Sometimes depth of bevel can be deeper than 1.5 mm.
Usually, I use a pair of onglettes (size 1 – 5/0) with both the right and the left side sharpened.
The working side is just a little bit curved and perfectly polished. The sharpening angle depends on the hardness of the engraved metal.
90% of the jewelry making progress is piercing and engraving. I have to set up new onglettes about every six month.
It is unfortunate, but these types of gravers don’t work perfectly well for making short scrolls with my GraverMach. I use the reshaped onglettes only for hand engraving. When engraving guns and knives, I used them for the final bright cut only.
The following pictures show “John Barleycornâ€￾ – Men’s Collar Tie / Hat bend combo, as an example of really deep bright cut engraving.
I will make photos for a tutorial for a bright cut in a few days
