Sorry I haven't posted in a while. So last week we did channel setting you can see the picture below. He has some great tricks on how to do channel setting different from the norm, so make sure to visit the school if you have any interest in channel setting. We also polished a ring from a filing exercise before. The picture isn't great, but it got super shiny. I used 800 polish (Blaine said it was an Asian polishing formula). He also spoke of the awesome quality and usefulness of Picasso Blue (he said it would eliminate 3 polishing steps...so make sure to look into buying some if you're doing a lot of mass finishing work and want to save some time.
We worked on chain repair and retipping today. The chain repair was actually pretty fun and easy to do surprisingly. We haven't filed the retipping at all, so I'll add a new picture once we do that. Sorry about the picture quality, the light in the room isn't as good today.
