Would like to know if the russian CZ mounted in 14kt can be
retipped without removing the stone. Thanks Bob >>
Bob, Can be done, but not a good idea. Remove it if you can, have
a replacement stone ready if you can’t. Use a soft flame, very
low temp. solder, liberal boric acid and don’t quench. They tend
to shatter internally. It also helps to think pure thoughts,
(puppy dogs, angels, meadows full of flowers, that sort of
thing). Good vibes can’t hurt. Mark P.
