Default Re: Western Bright Cut Tutorial

Sorry, for the non responses guys, I never look over here at this part of the forum. But I will try to give answer to your questions, however belated they are.

Steve L. The plate is 2x2 and the squares are about 5/8". When I sharpen my square gravers I only polish the heel and face, the heel is the most important, the sides of the graver remain untouched. Also, after the heel is polished on the ceramic lap, I then run it over some micron paper to give it the real polish it needs. The ceramic lap is not enough.

JT , Yes I need to get the castings made, been wanting to do that for a year or so, but just have not had time. I am planning on having them available for my May classes students to take home for study.
