Default Re: Making your own grinding, mandrel

I use the Lindsay discs http://www.handgravers.com/ the 100 grit is great as I can remove a lot of metal from a blank quickly where before with other equipement it was very slow going and could only get 260 max. grit. I usualy like 3 or more sizes of face on same shape cutters, different V angles, flats for sculpting and background removal, scrapers, gold inlay, bulino and banknote. Before I would dread making up tools it just took so long to grind them down, now if I need a new or special tool it only takes minutes and I'm back to work then I add that tool to my inventory.
