Been given several ways to channel set stones... was taught to
- 'Gruve' the side walls on both sides
- 'Score' bottom track where stone will set.
- Set stone in place
Don't fine it easy, but have seen pros do it
this way .. double quick
-- At a show, a lady, who had only channel set stones
used a ,hammer, then smoothed . . . expensive to
try... have to buy a hammer
-- Third, as Gavin suggested, use a bur () ... this can look
somewhat tacky if the channel edge is left with a ' curve
I know the first looks great if you can master it!!!!

attempted this method yet because I can't understand the basic principle. I
gather each stone has its own seat to keep it steady, but how are they
secured? Is it magic? Is it superglue? Is it crystal power? (no disrespect
intended Dave!) Most books I can find here in Tasmania (Australia) only
mention this method briefly with one or two confusing pictures,
P.S: Are there any Tasmanian jewellers on Orchid who could demonstrate it
