Making your own concave cutter mandrels
« on: September 03, 2021, 06:29:49 PM »
Searched old subjects on the forum and found a couple on making concave cutter attachments for your faceting machine, but could not find one on making mandrels. Have made all my mandrels for my concave cutter and nearly finished a mold for coating a copper mandrel with an old BATT lap metal.
So will start posting shortly on how I made it and other info on making mandrels.

Should make for interesting reading, look forward to it. I wonder whether similar processes could be used for making gem-carving bits that you could use in a hand-held rotary handpiece?
