    Dennis, I have that tweezer set too and have found the self-locking ones useful for soldering. Their fairly gentle grip, compared with the standard self-locking tweezers, is what I mainly found...

    If you're a gold member of the GOJD, you should get 10% off with Betts (you did on most items when I last looked, at any rate). Alternatively, try asking them to price match.

    For the first twenty-one years of my life I was right-handed. Then one day I had to become permanently left-handed. I'm now probably more dexterous (pardon the etymological infelicity) at many things...

    If you can pull the strips (how long are they?) off the coins I'd be astonished if they are being properly soldered on.
    Perhaps you could show us a close-up photo of a soldered joint and/or the two...

    I have to agree with Dennis. Your set-up looks decidedly dodgy. Is there a reason you are trying to do things in this very unconventional and, from the look of things, very unsafe, way?

    Not sure what you mean by "looking for". The settings could easily be made out of tube. Stone diameter can be chosen according to the diameter of the tube or vice versa.

    That's useful information to have. Thanks.
    How do you find it working with the Milbro, and is yours the 12000rpm version or the 18000?
    Welcome to the forum, by the way!

    The supporting strip can actually form the back bezel of the multi-stone setting; in other words it doesn't need to be filed away, just filed into shape. Jarvis shows you how from p.75 on.

    No two stones look the same size and the second setting from the left looks like it has 5 claws. Having said that, I can't see any major reason why it couldn't be fabricated.

    Can I ask you, Sarah, whether superglue can be used to hold things in place while you solder? (I've never tried it, so have no idea). In other words, if you flux the glued together parts, will the...

    On the map we're tiny. The trouble comes when you're trying to get from A to B, which generally takes a lot longer per mile than in Australia because of all the traffic impeding...

    Yes, for tip numbers 2 to 7 the psi range is 2 to 8.
    8 psi is significantly less than one bar.
