      Gee, Randy, you must be using jewelers magnifying glasses for that detail.

        This is one of my easier cuttings, but I wanted to post it to show how a five minute cutting can turn out something decent. I did this piece by holding the coin directly. This was a half dollar (which I really like) which made holding it by hand feasible (though not easy).

        Sammy, for this specific pattern, you could use a 0/2 and come back and touch up the detail after the initial cutting, but I believe I used the 0/8 on this one. If you've seen some of my other stuff of late, some of that required an 0/8. For very small sharp corners, 0/8 is a must. At first I didn't believe 0/8 would ever become controllable, but with a little practice, they are becoming more manageable.

        Denny, I use the regular magnifier that many scrollers use, and combine that with some powerful reading glasses. There are probably better ways so I need to make friends with a jeweler since they are the pro's in this kind of thing. Other peoples cumulative experience is the best experience, I'm just not sure how to break in to that circle. The professional coin cutters won't talk to me.
