Default Re: Carl Bleile - sharpening with templates & pictures

Carl's training and experience as, not only an artist, but a skilled tool and die maker is what sets him apart from me and alot of other engravers. He still amazes me with some of the things he invents or modifies. When he was about 10 years old he took apart our dad's stopwatch and caught holy hell. Dad scared me out of such misadventures but it didn't stop Carl. Of course now when he takes something apart he can put it back together (usually modified to his needs).
