    Powered is a catch-all - that covers impact handpieces (LPF + Foredom hammer, Magna Graver), pneumatic (GRS, Lindsay, older Ensets) and the newer electromechanical Enset.

    I wouldn't leave it on for too long (months) as you're more likely to have to clean adhesive residue off but I've not seen any reaction issues.

    My initial reaction is that's a lot to size down and yes, conventionally it'd put the stone at risk (distortion of the shoulders as it's being sized).
    My gut feel would be to unset the stone and...

    The Sieverts are common as a propane/air torch in Europe; I know the Smith air/acetylene torches are popular in the US, but I don't know of a direct equivalent to the Sievert. The EZ torch might be...

    Not a border pattern this time, which makes a difference. Instead of the cut both defining the shape and removing the background, this requires a separate pass of background...

    Meths is denatured alcohol (with dye & Bitrex). You can buy denatured alcohol without the dye, but it tends to be more expensive. If the dye's not an issue I'd stick with meths.
