New Press

I'm all excited this week, I got a new hydraulic press. What on earth for you may well ask yourselves, well all sorts of things says she.

The initial use is to make cutting beautiful clean edged discs from metal easier. I can do it using a bit of brute strength and ignorance but with littlies around that's not always as easy as it seems.

I'm also planning to use it to emboss silver with some of my etched designs, making them not only repeatable but also enabling me to make all my design mistakes on brass rather than silver. A much cheaper alternative me thinks.

I don't have a picture of the press yet but I will try to snap one later today. I have however already listed a few items on my etsy store using discs cut using it so why not pop over and take a look.

Have a great day everyone
