Thanks chris I really appreciate the photos
We were working with different table depths to see if we could still make the nice flush ring surface for the cartouche. So far so good! Next lesson we learned is that each roundel is ever so slightly different sized so that was a surprise. Next week we try some embellishments. We can cut and resize the rings now and have a laser for etching and engraving we want to experiment with. Great fun this project has been. Rings getting better now too, some ss roundels are coming. Much harder to find and much more expensive than the sa. The next ring blanks are period pieces from Germany coming in a month or so. Even have the ads to go with them. Much thinner table depth and much finer rings. Authentic roundels in period pieces coming sometime soon stay tuned
