Default Re: Gold inlay script and block lettering on a custom rifle

Hi Cassie, you are waaaay too kind.


That's a great question ...

I used a 105 degree graver made with Steve's 105 template. That allowed me to go wide in parts of the letters without going too deep. If the letters were larger, I would have used a Universal.

After I got the width just right, I went back over the edge of the letters to square up the walls of the inlay channel. I used a square graver for that.

Charlie ... some fun on that other site Now that we know what the "poverty line" for engravers is, I know I'm in pretty darn good company!!

Speaking of spell check ... I don't know if it is supposed to be "inlayed" or "inlaid".
