1st Video: Shading a die smaller than a dime.           2nd Video: Deep bright cut engraving.

The (toolsteeldie.rm) videos below show the engraving of a die used to reproduce the inset engraving in the butt of the Air Chasing Graver.  The diameter of the design is only 5/8".  The video was taken through a microscope at approximately 25x magnification and during the process of cutting fine parallel lines for shading of the engraving.  The shading cuts in this engraving are small.  The distance from one shading cut to the next is approximately 002" to .004".   Depth of cut varies from 0" to .002".  The engraving was executed this small and precise to show the fine impact control of the Air Chasing Graver.   Each Air Chasing Graver features this engraved butt inset and it can be used as a learning example for beginners or advanced users. O1 tool steel was used in the engraved die.
