2003 - Bench Tricks and Anecdotes

0.00

Bench tricks are as old as the industry. A jeweler will often find a better way, a new method or an improvisation to make his or her job easier. This paper will focus on a series of unique and useful tricks, ranging from sawing and steam casting, to a better way to protect one's eyes when welding platinum. How to carve a better wax and how to make a good raised letter model are part of this paper. A section on hand-tool modification and the use of everyday items not tintended for jewelry making is included. The different topics are then lined with short anecdotes from the bench and the shop.
