New Toy - GRS Metal Forming Press - for bracelets
I didn't have any blanks etched to try so I just did up a quick blank (filed and sanded the corners) and gave it a try - didn't really take my time just wanted to try it out -
Havnt read all the instructions about using the different heads and the actual press bed that can me melted to fit the form (I'll figure that out later )
Came out pretty nice - really tight and impressed with the unit -
I took one of my zentangle and did it too. even preformed can be reworked .
I like the flat work but this is even nicer finish to the bracelet - this is a very suttle bend - I need to read a bit more about the tin bed as it can be heated and reformed. There is no deformity when pressing as the bed is made of tin a very soft material . There is a flat former head accessory that I want to get too as it will make bending easier and more even.
