I have been doing quite a lot of work on my GraverMax
Along with setting and engraving, comes the second next important thing after hand control, and that is sharpening your gravers.
So I made a different holder for the GRS system on my Imahashi.
The top one is the original for gem cutting and the bottom one is made for the GRS graver holder.
I have to make a special holder because the frikking Americans refuse to change to metric.
So GRS is a quarter of an inch and my 1974 made Imahashi tang is 6mm.— like in 1974…..
Quarter of an inch is to big for the Imahashi’s chuck.
I turned it out of a piece of stainless steel.
More of a mission to turn but it don’t rust ever.
That’s a big plus in the long run.
So now if I want to cut a graver at 60 degrees, I can.
Or any degrees, for that matter.
I use an old 1200 grit diamond lap with WD 4o as a pre polish cutting lap.
And then I polish it on a Cerium Oxide impregnated lap.
Polishes real quick.
And real, real sharp.
