This article covers setting-up Foredom AllSet Master Stone Setting Kit to cut consistent bearings for an in-line bracelet.
The Foredom AllSet Master Stone-Setting Kit includes prong, pave, channel-cutting guides and a fixture that attaches it to a Foredom No. 30 handpiece. The kit is capable of quickly being set-up in a multitude of ways to complete a variety of stone setting tasks.
The depth of the cut should allow the top of the gemstone to be slightly below the tops of the prongs prior to bending them. Experiment with a couple of settings and make the final adjustment. Next bur all bearings, one after the other using the Foredom Model TX Flexshaft at a medium low speed with plenty of lubrication.
The AllSet took less than two minutes to assemble for this project. Most AllSet users typically remove the L bracket only and use the No. 30 handpiece for general use with the AllSet attachment secured to it. Use of the AllSet takes less time to set up when leaving the attachment secured to the handpiece.
