Default Announcement: New Set of Sharpening Templates !

In the past weeks i was experimenting in a new templates set for the Lindsay Sharpening System , basically are thought for the hobo nickels carvers but they serve generally for any type of engravings, the idea was to reproduce with simplicity all the points that I use more to engrave nickels ,with the minor number of templates.
Finally, after talk with Steve, with its support and help, we have taken ahead the idea and the final result has been this Set of 3 Templates.





With this set you can sharp a lot of differents points:

- 50 V degree point without heels for detailing and very fine shading
- 50 V degree point with heels for medium and deep lines and for prepare inlay work
- Flat graver point
- Flat rounded corner point ,for easy background removal,the rounded corner reduce marks,especially usefull for hobo nickel carving
- Flat big radius point for sculpting works
- Stippling square point
- Stippling round point
- Sculpting Punch point in various geometries (round ,square and rectangle)
- Small round point




50 V degree point



Flat point



Flat Rounded Corner Point



detail of the rounded corner flat heels



Flat Radius Point



Square Stippling Point



Round Stippling Point



Small Round Point



Sculpting Punch


In the next days i will upgrade this post with videos and tutorials on how to sharp with these set of templates, although their use is very simple.

I think that this set will be avaible very soon,in the nexts days in the Steve's online tools catalog, i hope you will enjoy it!

A special thanks to Steve to his kindness and for support and help me with my "strange" experiments

Heare the first video:

Those rounded corner gravers are deadly. Probably the most versatile and important in my arsenol. I just feel bad for defiling Steve's templates now:(

These are fantastic ..... and they are not just for nickels. General carving and sculpting of just about any small figure or element. Nice job putting these together and definitely a much needed set of chisels.

Paolo way to go! The new template set look awesome. I can’t help but feeling that making your own template, sets you in high place with the best engravers. You sure deserve that place!

Now I need to wait for it to be put for sale…

Hi Mrthe,

I have placed my request for a set of the three templates.
Being able to put a radius with a template was good idea and using the same template for a V point and a flat point too, Awesome !!

Hey mrthe,

Thanks mrthe that’s brilliant, your templates and videos are just what I will need soon I believe. Also thanks for showing me that there are a great many more quality original hobo nickels in circulation than I previously thought in video chat here a few days ago, you are always so helpful and gracious.

Paulo and Steve,

Thank you, both! Great you have laboured to get these graver geometries up on the Forum, for the common good. As Chris says, it is worth trying these geometries on a wider range of work, and I for one intend to explore what they might do in a variety of jobs.

Gracias por todo!

Rod

Enhorabuena Paolo,

Muy creativo, de verdad me impresionas !
Al ver como utilizas esos buriles llanos con las facetas redondas , me parecen muy bien indicados para rebajar los fondos sin dejar marcas como cuando se usa el llano normal ...

Congratulations Paolo it's nice to see new points!

Regards

Jean

Mrthe (Paolo) has made castings of two of his hobo nickels ("GoldTooth Skull" and "The Mummy"). He made the casting to be given to people that purchase the "Mrthe" three piece template sharpener set. For people that have purchased the set before the castings arrived to me from Paolo, your casting should be arriving this week separately from your ordered templates. There is a limited supply of both of these castings. To make them last longer we will randomly select one or the other to go in with the template orders. So you would be receiving the "GoldTooth Skull"or the "The Mummy".

(Update edit: We have now ran out of the gift castings. Thank you again Paolo for making them!)

"The Mummy"coin Paolo gave as a gift to my daughter Kaitlin. Kaitlin is finishing up her graduate studies at Johns Hopkins. Her thesis is on mummies so this coin Paolo did for her is perfect. He even engraved Kaitlin's name in Hieroglyphics on the coin. Thank you again Paolo for your kindness with this and everything you do!

To see more of Mrthe's hobo nickel carving check out his new site that he recently updated. http://www.mrthehobonickels.com/
Once there click on "Works". http://www.mrthehobonickels.com/works/category/works/
Also click on "Blog" and he has his tutorial there about how to make castings. http://www.mrthehobonickels.com/works/category/blog/

mrthe,
You use the word "dude" frequently, but I think it gets lost in translation as to what you actually want to say. In Spanish, dude would be equivalent to amigo or colega. Can you clarify in different words what you are trying to say?

Thanks,
Dave

Mrthe, I have one question for you about the 50v. Do you use a CarbaltXD graver or an M42? With 18k I had no issues with the 50v CarbaltXD but when I went to cut nickles I broke the tip time and time again. Just wondering what you're using so I can decide whether I'm being to heavy handed or should just switch steels for the nickles.
Thanks for the great templates and the nickle cast, a very handy set with a reference nickle
Mark

Mike i never use carbalX for V points under the 90 degree,because is more easy broke the point,for hobo nickels i use m42 or hss and work perfect

Bob hehehe I really appreciate folks who corrected me because it is the only way to understand where you do something wrong and improve.
unfortunately all the schools I attended in my life have been art schools and formerly not studied languages ​​foreigners in this type of school in the academies of fine arts also.
So I've been practicing self-taught English as engraving since I started to participate in this forum only form a year ago,but quiet, it does not take away my desire to participate in this great forum where I met wonderful and generous people, great artists and many friends, who day after day bring me many skills so I'll always be a pleasure to contribute my bit to the extent that it can.

Mrthe,

You Sir, deserve every bit of the compliments you have become in this thread. I bought the template set a few weeks ago and finally started making gravers yesterday. It took a bit to figure out exactly how the graver should look when finished...but it worked. Your pictures in this thread helped. The first one I made was the flat rounded. It cut the metal like butter.
Two months ago, I gave up on a project I was working on because of troubles with the background. I brought out the project again and your graver let me scoop out the background so fast and got it so flat, so nicely that I continued right through meal time (and I was hungry) and I finished the project in a couple of hours. Then I had a beer and food to celebrate!!!!. I am really happy with this graver and I wish to thank you. It is the most useful have...for what I work on....I'm sure.
I tried the oval punch too and it worked wonderful and could even be used to get corners too!

I am happy. This was the best 39 bucks I can remember spending on any tool. I hope you sell a lot of them and make a bit of money...Thanks!
