Gravermeister


#1

Hi All,

I’ve enjoyed all the posting and now have a question. Does anyone
in orchid have a GRS gravermeister or gravermax system? If so,how
are the results of bright cutting around stones, raising beads for
pave, and how difficult is it to learn to use? Is there a better
system than the GRS or do you have any other suggestions? I have
done some hand engraving but, I am finding that for somethings I’m
just not strong enough and was wondering if this tool might help.
Thank you ahead of time for the … AVA

He could answer any questions you might have.

Yes Ava, I have used the Gravermeister and Gravermax for years. I
would recommend it to anyone who wants to lessen work time and
increase quality for both engraving and bright cutting around
stones. I have seen a hand made tomahawk head, made of 440C
stainless steel carved with a high relief carving of an indian on a
horse all done with a Gravermax. If it will do that, it will
easily cut gold and silver. I use it for pave, and it is great for
channel setting. It has as much finnesse as you are willing to
use. As a practice piece, I bezel set a round opal in steel, and
engraved around it a flower design, without breaking the opal.
Besides the hammer and engraving handpieces, there is also a high
speed handpiece (300,000 rpm) that is fantastic for small carving
work in great detail.

I hope this helps. If I can be of any assistance, just
e-mail…Duane

Hi Ava, Yes, I have used both the Gravermeister and the Gravermate
for bright cutiing and also relief engraving on guns. The Gravermate
and Gravermax have a little more power, but you will need an
external air compressor. The Gravermeister has more than enough
power to use for bright cutting and is fully portable. It has its
own air pump. They all make bright cutting and bead raising a snap!
Good Luck, Ken
