Default Video: Bright-cut engraving & lettering a gold flute

This is the engraving of the logo and serial number on a solid gold music flute for Nagahara Flutes. www.NagaharaFlutes.com

Towards the end of the video when I was taking the pattern off the screen turns blue. Wait a little while and it will come back. There is a little more to the video after that.

Hi Bill, Yes, used to for several flute makers. Brannen Bothers was one www.Brannenflutes.com

Here are photos from a previous thread. http://www.engravingforum.com/showthread.php?t=2376

The gold ones were usually rose gold 14k and 10k.


Silver one


Brannen sent out a piece of gold with the bend in it for their logo to be engraved. They used a photo of it on their catalog.

The gold foot joint tubes received a logo on them, silver did not. The headjoint tube gets the same logo. The barrel on the body receives more.. logo maker name with serial number.

This is an ink print from roses design on a lipplate.



Rose gold lip plate with 14k white gold tube

Wow, super cool to see! Ist really nice to see these videos, and try to learn a little from it..

Does the live stream from engravers still work? I remember I used to love watching this, but it seems I can't log into that or see anyone going live.. :-)

Thanks for sharing! :-)

You said you engraved high end flutes but you weren't specific of WHAT you engraved on them. You sir are a machine. No room for error. Fantastic

Don't know why but all I see is a black screen, the same as the other video.

Awesome video Steve. What do you have the flute mounted in? Something that rotates it looks like? (not the engraving ball obviously). Thanks

Steve, I assume all but the obvious flat cuts on the BOSTON letters you used a Universal 120 degree. Ray taught me to do lettering with a bright cut but Ive also used a 120 and it felt like I had a bit more control. I like the font you used and the letters, easiest seen in the lower case "h", where the long stroke has an angled cut that changes direction. Hope I was clear enough with that.

In any case nice work, love that rose pattern; Ill bet that looked fantastic on the instrument. Are you still doing these or is Tim doing them now.

The screen goes from 'white', to 'black', and no video. I wonder why?

Thanks guys.. Here is a link to the video on youtube for those that it isn't displaying in the first post: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8IudSaNZdw

The Boston block letters are with the 116 degree universal. The larger script is the 123 degree Calligraphy.
At the ends of the block letter I'm just stabbing in a flat without a heel first. Then come back with the 116 and connect the stabs.

From 1994 to 2007 I engraved logos for various flute companies in the New England area. When the tools became busy I recommended Brian Marshall for the Nagahara account, and for Brannens flutes Andy Shinosky and Tim Adlam since Brannens produces more than Nagahara. Andy has been keeping up with all of Brannens the past few years though.

My wife Karla teaches private flute and piano lessons. That is how I learned of these companies and contacted them in the 90s after seeing a flute magazine she subscribed to. Later on we ordered Karla a Brannen flute with rose gold faceted rings. Brannens let us chose the serial number 3333. The one with the engrave body and levers posted above is it. Here is the barrel joint and crown at the end of the head joint.

Very nice work, must have been nice to be able to order the instrument for her and then be able to add your personal art to it for what must be something she treasures.
