Default Re: Sharpening the lindsay Point on a faceting machine

The powered gravers will get you line with an ease that's almost magical.

No shoving, no sliding wildly across the plate (well, not much :doh

Just press and the metal starts to curl.

You cut a straight line, then another.

You roll the graver from side to side as you cut to see the line flare and fade.

Roll the vise a little in great sweeping S turns and tiny, tight spirals.

That's the first while with a powered graver.

Then, having mastered the line you face the real test:
what can you do with those lines?

Be sure and post pictures! :camera:
