Default Re: Angle the graver while cutting and depth of cut

Hi Ed and Axl!

Ed, My straight up I tend to lean a little to the left. Not meaning to, but I know I do.
With how deep for like lettering, I'll go whatever is needed to get the width I'm after in that part of the letter. Look at the logo/lettering on the body of the handpiece. That is what the cuts look like.

There are several ways to cut lettering. You can do small outlines around it and several cuts to take out the middle. That is light and shallow. Another way is I usually have one light line and then a larger laid/flared-over cut that becomes the middle and other side at a depth needed to get that width.
