Hello from Oregon

Recommended Posts

Thanks for letting me join as I find this very interesting and after yrs of carving ( not small) it is a desire of mine and to meet and ask and learn from gemstone carvers or any small carvers. I am interested in carving with a fixed mandrel as I have always been a tool packer..lol thankyou and i look forward to learning here. 

Best M

You might want to think about the book listed below.  I have taken two classes from Mr. Friesen and they were very good.  the book is a summary of his classes and the tools used.  The fixed carving arbor that is used is available from Diamond Pacific, but if you can find the fordom polishing arbor and chuck from another vendor it will be cheaper.
