Necessity is the mother of invention

Recommended Posts

Because I needed to use a cutter so that I could do a wax infill, but the ends of the line of text were far higher than the middle. Using a nose cone was not going to be an option, and I have still not got a complete grip on how to use the depth gauge settings, so didn't want to spend time trying to find out if that would work. Doing one letter at a time seemed to be the most time effective way of getting a pretty consistent depth. It was only a matter of blueing everything out, turning each letter in turn back to black and resetting to the surface each time.

I'm the same. I'll spend ages trying to set up an awkward piece securely enough to engrave and probably make bugger all for doing it. I get a sense of achievement from it though.  "Job satisfaction"

I tell myself that it's ok because it's all good experience for next time. But I really think we should have a note on the price list that says " B****y awkward items will carry a £20 surcharge" .

Had a shovel to do a couple of weeks ago !
