Default Re: NEW Gold Inlay and Undercut, Template Set

works well. i had always made my own rounds for my line inlays. worked well. this template is much faster and cleaner. i can resize as needed for the diameter of material. the heel idea is a real plus. i have done some basic line boarders for a colt cyl. photo examples. i cut the bands with the lathe, as usual to size. as of now i still use the knife cut for the undercut . it has always worked and is very quick. i see no use for the undercut tool in that it can create a channel bigger than the wire is to fill it . i used a .016 wire in these lines and tryed a .08 undercut chisel. worked ok , but the knife and displacing for me worked better. i respect the way anyone else may inlay , but this is the way i was taught . hope i can help someone with this subject . any questions i will try to answer. got this new camera for christmas and had to try it out. john pilk
