Cravnair. Spotted your post and thought you may find this heplful. Rotory cutting is not engraving in it truest form but some great work can be done. It is very hard to get the work so fine or exact but if the designs are with wide enough lines you can do it. So two things can help make your lines thinner. Get some round jewelers burs. They are available down to .25mm, and after they get dull or the tip breaks off cut the end to look like a tiny straight scew driver. These cut like crazy. Get some push gravers as you can and practice on copper and other soft metals. As you learn the technics and to sharppen sharper your on you way. See your work here soon. chickenscratcher
