Re: [Harp-L] New embossing tool

That was actually a really sharp chisel I was using. You could cut yourself with it. I'm scraping a line of burrs at a slight angle. It's the same process either way, just the tool is different. The knife blade and it is a small and short one, has a little more give.
The smooth stuff I was talking about were actually sockets, a half mark coin, etc.

That's actually what Jason and I were doing in that one video, embossing with the .303. Me and Dad? We just tore stuff up.

So, Dave, I know you used to use a dull chisel, which you show on your video.  Now you use a sharp knife.  Are you scraping the edges of the slot at an angle mushrooming it out, or are you scribing along the slot pushing the brass out?  

Or, are you shooting a bullet at it grazing the surface of the slot creating a valley next to the slot, and if so what caliber do you suggest?  Just kidding.

I used to use the smooth stuff, Jason Ricci got me on the sharp stuff. I was 
using an Exacto knife, know I'm using this little bone-handled German pen knife, 
it's very light and feels better in my hand than the exacto.
