    Default Still playing with chemical etching

    Well I have decided I like the chemical etch on brass better than the rotary engraving or a stamp. Seems more definitive with the darkening. Phosphoric acid highlight.
    The plate I am not so sure about. I may try to darken it a bit. But what ever I use I don't want it to rub off. Burnishing wheels etc. will tend to clean those etches right out. I like to stay with a semi gloss on the plates. Thoughts?
    Pink Ivory little guy saw. 16ppi x 12* rake x 0* fleam.

    Then a couple of Sycamore fellows. Dovetail 10" x 2" canted. 15ppi x 8* rake x 0* fleam

    Lastly a closed carcass. 12" x 3" under spine x 0.025" . 14ppi x 15* rake x 25* fleam

    Otherwise, nothing new going on in my neck of the woods. Later.

    Hi Ron. I also like the chemical etching on the brass back. I would not change the deeper etch on the saw plate. Excellent work with those backsaws.

    regards Stewie;
