Default Re: Newbie Introduction and Questions

Steve,

Received my Optivisor lenses and determined that 2X provided the best combination or magnification and distance to workpiece. Chucked a piece of mild steel into my GRS (heresy I know) ball vice and started on straight lines. Still find myself trying to steady the graver with my left hand. Practised recutting lines to get more depth.

My normal finishing stone is a Shapton 16K (0.92��. Is that sufficient for a polish or do I need to go to 0.25�� diamond paste or 0.125�� CBN?

Won't do any polishing until my template arrives. Will cut more tomorrow.

Mel
