Done. Micro Shred CF scales, zirc clip, M390 Blade. My scratches on the pivot heads.
Today’s shop tip. These are silicone baking cups in muffin size. They come in a sheet. Cut them apart. Best little parts cups ever. Here I am blackening some screw heads in Caswell Stainless Steel Blackener.
Engraved some pivot heads for a folder. Turns out I used the wrong size and these are .050”DIA too big. I guess I’ll use these on the next folder and remake them the right size.
Ready to engrave a bit. Sharpening and makers mark is last.
Today’s shop tip. If you are sculpting a delicate handle scale, go slow with a high grit on a 1” flex back belt using a slack wheel set up.
Change my mind.
Here is some more crap you can put in heat treat foil. When foil sticks bad you have to grind it off which sucks. A sprinkle of talc powder stops it from sticking and reduces the heat patina quite a bit.
This what I use to measure grind height both sides. Magnet holds it on grinder so it doesn’t walk off. I broke one “ear” off so I just use the one side.
