Bezel #1 HSS bur

Description

In this new series of Bezel setting, I am aiming to introduce my well proven methods of Bezel setting.
In this first video I show my use of a High Speed Steel setting bur. It has an angle of 90 degrees. I now show how the angle of the bur is in relation to the ring.
By tilting the bur forward, you are then cutting sections of the bezel wall. All of these angles must match the angles of the Oval stone. Seeing is better than words!
