Micro chisel system

Here is a special chisel clamp I made to tackle deep engraving backgrounds. 
 

I had to use one I had already made to chisel out the groove for the graver stock !

 



I can do extra narrow areas if I grind the sides of the stock down. It is a great solution to deep engravings in softer metals. 

 

Getting in and around raised areas can be a challenge with a large graver. Visibility is obscured and there is a greater risk of damaging areas with the backside of the graver.
