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

Beautiful work. Question, after you have undercut, inlaid the wire, when you pound the wire into the inlay, are you trying to push the upset metal back into place or, are you just trying to get the surface as even as possible and using the stone to bring the surfaces level? How do you get the edges so straight after upsetting the edges? Thanks for sharing. The idea of using two polished plates in lieu of a rolling mill is a great help.
