You know, the value to us as craftspeople for CVD would be for us to
coat our tools with it.
Especially for working lapidary materials with a small flex shaft,
diamond tools work well for many situations, and the ability to coat
my own tools would be interesting.
I have a sputtering chamber, but I have never used it, it is sitting
in a warehouse, is it hard (no pun) to deposit a layer, say, of 100
angstroms? forget the gem properties, for toolmaking this should be
all that is needed.
