Default Re: Bulino Templates

Phil,

I just realized something. The graver I used to use for bulino dots was just a straight shank on the bottom without a heel. If I were to try and cut a line with it I would have needed to hold the graver perfectly horizontal to the surface. This bulino graver you use is tapered on the bottom and not straight with the shank. Effectly the taper is a shallow very long heel. So for cutting a line the taper on the bottom is raising the angle of attack. Anyway, I just tried cutting some fine lines with it and you're right it works great
