I will do that, I was thinking today as I do certain jobs I should takes some pictures and post them up. Maybe some of the other forum members could do the same too?

Paul:

That’s a darn good idea. I know I could post some informative pictures — on how “NOT” do do something. ;)

Regarding the jewel issue… I’ve read several things about rubbed in jewels, but that’s just not as good as a detailed discussion with other minds looking at the problem. The opening and closing tools I understand. However, what tool do you use to do the final burnishing? I saw a sketch of a rounded tool in de Carles’ book but he sort of just skimmed over that and I don’t remember ever seeing the burnisher as part of the set we are discussing.

Thanks!
