  • I did it!!!

    Cut my first coin today. Far from perfect but I am happy with the results. I want to thank Randy aka Hotshot for the encouragement. It was cut on my Ex-21 using a 2/0 Super Pike 2/0 jewelers blade. It is/was a US quarter. The symbol stands for Courage. coins 4.jpg

      Could not live without one. These eyes are not what they once were. I also have cataracts but they are not ready for removal. Goes with the age. I bought this one when I attend a class at Judy Gale Roberts studio a couple years back. I have a cheaper one too but it does not work as well.

                Good luck with it, Scott. I'm way to shaky to try that kind of stuff.

                    Excellent. What was the most difficult part of the process for you?

                      Holding the coin while cutting. I attempted to hold with just my fingers but that did not work so using CA glue I attached the coin to a roughly 2"square piece of 1/8" blatic birch plywood. This gave me enough to hold and control.
