I’m just about to embark on some new stone setting techniques other
than the bezel settings that I always make and I’m awaiting delivery
of a Foredom Allset Master stone setting system so that I can cut
accurate seats and channels, etc.
I’d like to know what sorts of burrs you think are essentials for
stone setting. I already have a set of good quality burrs where the
profile of the cutting surfaces is in the shape of a round brilliant
diamond’s profile - I can’t remember what they’re called. I also have
a set of similar ones where the sides are straight/vertical and the
lower edges are like the pavilion of a round brilliant - again I
can’t remember what they’re called. What other types of burrs do
stone setting folks routinely use and for what purpose? Do I need
the cup burrs to dress prongs for example?
Thanks in advance.
