So I’ve been practicing on this design I found online. Made some adjustments to better fit my requirement. Quite an intricate and complex design; excellent practice material. At the moment (0737 PM), I’m about 2/3 done.
I’ve grind away the excess metal at the tip of my square graver. That makes it easier to see where I’m cutting and where to position my cutting tip.
I’ve also placed an order of a few pieces of 2mm by 2mm by 200mm High Speed Steel online. Nice.
