Welcome to the hand engraving forum Lesley. Your web site shows you to be a very talented artist. It amazes me that such detailed work can be done with rotary grinders. Are there health hazards associated with with your work considering the fine particles that must be airborne?

thanks again for the comps.... as for the dust, I use a lot of dripping water, very large dust extractor and wear a disposable mask.
