Well today we went all the way back to the beginning! We made sanding sticks by wrapping sandpaper around paint sticks. These are very useful tools, I have them in my studio, I use them more on gold pieces than silver. We also modified our bench pins. There was pretty specific measurements to follow and a lot of layout. It was kind of fun doing a bit of warmup stuff before we get onto it. Tomorrow we put safety edges on a few files. A safety edge prevents abraiding the gemstone while you clean up prongs. I’ll take a couple pics, I forgot to today.
